Summer is coming to an end and a lot of you (teachers and children) will be going back to school. BUT…., that doesn’t mean we can’t have a couple of last hoorahs!!!
On August 16th, Main Beach will be the place to be when the Dunes & Tunes Festival will take place. There will be a sand sculpting competition from 12pm – 3pm and then festival gates will open at 3:00pm with art exhibits, interactive play zones, giant waterslide, food trucks, concessions and amazing live music!!!Find more information Here.
Then, just a week later, on August 22 and 23, the 5th Annual Great Southern Tail Gate Cookoff will kick off on Main Beach with dozens of competing BBQ trucks and great live music. On Friday the gates will open at 3pm and music starts at 3:30pm with the country performers “Dirt Floor Crackers”, followed by southern party band “the Swinging Medallions”. Saturday morning the gates open at 10am and live music starts at 10:45am with “Rockit Fly”, followed by local favorites,”the Beech Street Blues Band” and closing by the “Bama Gamblers”.

And then another 3 weeks later the famous Amelia Island Blues Festival will kick off on September 12 and 13 with a number of national and international blues giants on the roster. Since your innkeeper is one of the original founders of the festival, we always make this weekend special with music on the beach and BBQ in the courtyard. There are still some openings in our schedule for all 3 events, but they will go fest once the publicity machine starts.
AND REMEMBER…all three events are on Main Beach, walking distance from the Inn.
