The Golden Isles, primarily Saint Simons Island and Jekyll Island, are known for their marshes and beaches… But in addition to the beautiful views and relaxing landscape, there are endless events throughout the month of November that are perfect for visitors or full-time residents.
Friday, November 1st- Sunday, November 3rd: Georgia Florida Gameday Weekend
For the past 50 years, the Golden Isles become Bulldawg headquarters for the annual showdown between The University of Georgia & The University of Florida. Although the game is played in Jacksonville, most fans love to spend their game day weekend on Georgia's coast. The town truly turns red and black, most local businesses offer great deals for football fans, there's an abundance of live music and great food, and plenty of TV's for cheering on the dawgs! There's hardly a vacation home or hotel room to spare during this big football weekend each year… So throw on your red & black, and join in on the fun!
Saturday, November 2nd- Sunday, November 3rd: St. Simons Antique Show
If football isn't for you… St. Simons Island takes advantage of the cooler temps and ocean breeze each and every November, hosting their Antique Show. Wander from tent to tent under the oaks in the historic Pier Village area. This year they will be set up on the grounds of the beautiful revitalized Postell Park, on Beachview Drive off Mallory Street. Antique dealers come from all over the Southeast so there's truly something for everyone: furniture, jewelry, artwork, glassware, collectibles, and treasures galore.
Sunday, November 10th: Brunswick PorchFest
Head to Brunswick for some community camaraderie, live music, food trucks, and a tour of the beautiful Old Town Historic District. PorchFest is a true neighborhood music celebration! Family and friends stroll from porch to porch to hear live performances and then end with a finale at the Brunswick Manor at 5 pm. Everyone involved volunteers their time and musical talent to the event, and each year it happens rain or shine!
Saturday, November 16th: Sea Island Half Marathon & 10K
Runners rejoice! The Sea Island Half Marathon & 10k is also known as "A luxury race getaway"... As runners get to escape to a destination unlike any other. Athletes will experience scenic views and minimal hills along the course, and at the end they're treated to a post race champagne brunch. Many decided to turn this into a long weekend vacation!
