February Events in the Golden Isles
Our Golden Isles always have â€œfunâ€ and unique activities in St. Simons Island, Sea Island, Little St. Simons Island, Jekyll Island, and Historic Brunswick.
Here are a few of the February ones:
Whiskey, Wine & Wildlife

Jekyll Island Beach Village
This combines inspired cuisine with beverage tastings. You will find some of the award-winning top chefs in the South as well as master distillers, famous pitmasters, wildlife researchers, and Michael McNeill, Georgiaâ€™s only Master Sommelier.
Also enjoy Jekyll Islandâ€™s exquisite beauty that has long drawn guests including millionaires of Americaâ€™s golden age and their amazing history, the stunning new oceanfront convention center, and this revitalized Beach Village with dining, shopping, and a beach promenade.
Southeast Georgia Health System Bridge Run
Saturday, February 18 â€“ 8:00 am to 12:00 noon
This Bridge Run is across Brunswick’s 7,780-foot Sidney Lanier Bridge, the state’s tallest span. At the center, the bridge rises 480 feet above the Brunswick River. It is a special event for the Golden Isles and for the benefit of the Health Systemâ€™s programs on cancer care.
Certified as “the toughest 5K in Georgia,” by the U.S. Track and Field Association, participants cross the bridge twice, which is not for the timid. After the race, there is a â€œfun walkâ€ followed by a family-friendly festival with food, drink, entertainment, community vendors, and children’s activities.
St. Simons Island Storytelling Festival
