Event Details

This event finished on 13 April 2014


April 9-13: The 6th Annual Tybee Wine Festival is an annual springtime celebration of wine and coastal cuisine set on postcard-perfect Tybee Island, the laid-back paradise located just 20 minutes east of historic Savannah. Presented by the historic Tybee Post Theater, this year’s event, features five days of international wines, fine food, and, of course, live music at Savannah’s Beach. All proceeds benefit the restoration of the historic Tybee Post Theater.

Our mission is to transform the Tybee Post Theater into an operating performing arts and cultural center. Our vision is to operate the Theater successfully as an integral part of our community that enhances our cultural experience, encourages and attracts visitors, and improves our quality of life. When you support the Tybee Wine Festival, and all Tybee Post Theater events, you help bring us one step closer to finally opening the doors of this historic theater and welcoming you to experience the power and magic of the arts!
