Join Us for the 2017 Tybee Wine Festival!

In less than two weeks, it’ll be the start of the 2017 Tybee Wine Festival, our island’s is an annual springtime celebration of wine and coastal cuisine.

Presented by the Tybee Post Theater, this year’s event, May 4-6, features three days of international wines, fine food, and, of course, live music set in three special venues across the island.

The festival, now in its ninth year, is bringing back some of its most popular Wine fest lighthouse events, including the intimate and elegant mulit-course wine-pairing dinner at the Tybee Island Social Club; and The Grand Wine Tasting on the beautiful grounds of the Tybee Island Light Station, with samplings of more than 100 international wines, tastings from our favorite Tybee restaurants, and live music on the festival stage.

And this year, there’s something special! For the first time, the Tybee Post Theater will present a Wine Festival event at its own historic venue. It’s called Viva I’Italia, and it’s an Italian wine tasting on the lawn in front of the Theater followed by a concert by the Vegas vocal band, Poperazzi, performing for the first time in the Coastal Empire! That’s Friday night and theSmall Vineyard wines are brought to you by the generous folks at the Savannah Wine Celler. Tybee Beach Vacation Rentals is sponsoring the event.

And Poperazzi will also perform a second concert at the Post Theater following The Grand Wine Tasting.

“The Tybee Wine Festival has truly evolved into one of Tybee’s signature annual events, growing year over year in popularity,” said Melissa Turner, executive director of Tybee Post Theater. “The festival is the perfect way to experience Tybee Island during such a beautiful time of the year. The festival offers attendees a welcome respite from the pressures of our busy lives with fantastic food and wine in a glorious island setting.”
