Again this year, the Georgia Elvis Festival returns to Brunswick, Georgia. Elvis tribute artists perform throughout the weekend, hoping to win a trip to the “Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Contest” in Memphis during Elvis Week in August. For an entire weekend, the streets are filled with Elvi (the plural of Elvis) and performances take place in the squares of downtown and inside the historic Ritz Theater. The Schedule of Events outlines everything from the free Opening Night Ceremony at Mary Ross Waterfront Park on Friday to the Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Contest Finals on Sunday. What better way to spend the weekend than days on the beach and nights with Elvis?!

This year is the 10th Annual Peaches to Beaches Yard Sale which runs over 200 miles along Highway 341 from Culloden, Georgia to Brunswick and the Golden Isles.

Georgia’s Longest Yard Sale will be open from 8am to 6pm on Friday and Saturday and treasure hunters will be making the annual trek. Why not start or end your hunt with a few nights on St. Simons Island?

Join us on St. Simons Island for the 61st Annual Christ Church Tour of Homes. This year’s tour includes grand homes on Sea Island and St. Simons Island. Musgrove Plantation will also be open to tour participants—the plantation boasts 1,000 acres of preserved land with only six residences. New in 2014, the Christ Church historic cemetery is an official stop and actors will bring some cemetery residents to life.
