Jekyll Island, Georgia transforms for the holiday season every year. The Historic District decorated in Christmas grandeur and special themed tours take guests back in time to Christmas during the Club era. The season begins with the Christmas Tree Lighting Festival the Saturday after Thanksgiving and continues with storytelling, caroling, craft workshops, and more. Come see the Jekyll Island christmas lights, and one of our favorite tree lighting ceremonies in Georgia!
