Pack a summer's worth of beach parties into one weekend with today's side deal in Jekyll Island, Georgia: for $6, you'll get a ticket to the Beach Music Festival & BBQ Bash at the Jekyll Island Convention Center. Choose one of the following options:
$6 for a ticket for the Kick-Off Party on Friday, August 20 from 8 p.m. to midnight (a $20 value)
$6 for a ticket for the Grand Finale Celebration on Saturday, August 21 from 8 p.m. to midnight (a $20 value)
The Kick-Off Party will feature Tommy Black & Blooz—a melodious, swinging funk combo—and Band of Oz, masters of horn-powered rock who have been dishing out heaping servings of funk for more than 40 years. At the Grand Finale Celebration, the Craig Woolard Band and the Swingin' Medallions—whose hit song "Double Shot (Of My Baby's Love)" achieved Billboard fame in 1966—will favor the crowd with soulful rock 'n' roll selections. After both evening concerts, DJ John Hook will keep the party going with danceable beach jams.
This year's 27th-annual Beach Music Festival marks the second birthday of its baby brother, the annual BBQ Bash. It will be the first Beach Music Festival & BBQ Bash held in the newly constructed oceanfront Great Dunes Park, and the last in the old Jekyll Island Convention Center before ground is broken for a new center.
Jekyll Island Authority
On Jekyll Island, waves crash along the 10 miles of beaches as kayaks cut through the salty water, cyclists roll over 20 miles of paved trails, and riders on horseback clop through hushed maritime forests. All visitors to the barrier island can partake in myriad active, relaxing, or educational activities while immersed in its lush natural landscapes, where dunes give way to beaches filled with hermit crabs and shell collecting and where birders clutch binoculars to examine avian habitats and decode gulls' sign language. The island's public golf club, open since 1898, hosts two 18-hole courses and one 9-hole course on manicured greens and rolling terrain. In the summer, the Summer Waves Water Park provides a cool escape from the heat with six slides, a wave pool, and a lazy river. For indoor adventurers, exhibits at the Georgia Sea Turtle Center illuminate the lives of the shelled reptiles, and a museum preserves relics of the wealthy families who used the island as their gilded getaway and a place to bury their expired money. The Jekyll Island Authority oversees all conservation and development on the idyllic island, existing to continually improve the park and its amenities.
