Events on Jekyll Island
Jekyll is a gathering place for families, friends, and groups, making it a perfect place to plan events. Many destination weddings occur on the island every year, while others gather to celebrate a special birthday or anniversary.
Such unions and reunions are all the more special when guests are surrounded by the natural beauty of our saltwater marshes, beaches, and waterways. Specially planned activities such as Historic District tours, Dolphin Tours, and restaurant outings can help your event create lasting memories for everyone involved.
All events and visitors to Jekyll Sandpiper are subject to our house rules and Jekyll Sandpiper Rental Agreement.
Smaller groups of around twenty or less might consider gathering at the beach or in Jekyll Sandpiper’s backyard. Since the yard is in the middle of the island’s oak grove, it can provide a quiet and beautiful backdrop for private events. We’ve also hosted groups who stage larger events at the convention center, beach pavilions, and island historic sites. Jekyll Island maintains a list of event venues.
JIA has tabulated a list of photographers, caterers, music, planners & coordinators, tenting & event rental supplies, and florists. We have had two previous renters use Beachview Event Rentals for setting up and tearing down an event tent in Jekyll Sandpiper’s backyard. We recommend them, as we and our renters were happy with the company and their services.
We’ve also compiled information on local bakeries and hairstylists. Since we have not used the services of these companies, please use this as a starting point in your search.
If either applicants is a Georgia resident, you can obtain your license from any county in the state. Out-of-state residents must obtain a license in the county where the ceremony will be performed. For a Jekyll Island, that is Glynn County.
