Last year’s inaugural Saint Simons Food & Spirits Festival had plenty of good cheer in the atmosphere, food, and even the tasty liquid kind, so much so that Elegant Island Living’s staff members are over the moon that we will be playing a more significant part in this year’s event which will be held October 1st – 6th.
The organizers are diligently working on the logistics and talent for the festival and firming up all the details for us to share with our readers. As the premier media outlet with complete access to all the “happenings,” we will be working with the committee to give you updates on the many speakers, teachers, exhibits and sponsors over the next couple of issues so make sure check us out each month. There will be a lot more activities, and more tickets available to purchase for all the exciting events.
As of press date, the organizers have announced several sponsors who have come on board in various ways: Atlantic National Bank, Maker’s Mark, Sea Island, Viola’s Market and, of course, us! If you are interested in sponsoring this important event benefiting Hospice of the Golden Isles, go to the website saintsimonsfoodandspirits.com for more information.
Tickets will be available to purchase starting July 1st on the website. Be sure to purchase a VIP ticket to Saturday’s event so you can come see us in the hospitality suite in the VIP Riverside Sporting Club presented by yours truly, Elegant Island Living! Until then we take a look back at some of last year’s fun.
