The third Saturday each October is the date of the annual Sapelo Island Gullah Geechee Culture Festival. This very special day is dedicated to the memory of ancestors of Sapelo residents. Sapelo Island is the last bastion of a true Gullah Geechee community, as most of these communities have dissipated.
For historians, musicologists, linguists, and anyone interested in coastal Georgia history, this is a day filled with education and entertainment for all. In addition, you’ll enjoy a wonderful 30 minute boat ride to and from the island! What more fun could you have on a Saturday in coastal Georgia!???
We will be performing, but the time is TBD. This festival is worth staying all day as there will be a lot to do and see. Bring your family and enjoy an educational day learning about the Gullah Geechee.
