Coastfest 2023


CoastFest, in its 28th year, is the largest outreach event hosted by the Coastal Resources Division of the Georgia Department of Natural Resources. This free, family-friendly event features educational programs, touch tanks, wildlife viewing opportunities, and exhibitors from partner agencies and nonprofit organizations. 

There's plenty to see and do for people of all ages at CoastFest. Whether you're interested in fishing, sea turtles, birds of prey, or Coastal Georgia history, we have something for you! Bring your family, curiosity, and sense of adventure when you "Catch the Excitement" at CoastFest on Earth Day from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, April 22, 2023, at Mary Ross Waterfront Park in Brunswick, 100 F St., Brunswick, GA 31520.

The park map shows the locations of exhibitor tents, activities, cannon firings, restrooms, food vendors, and more. Large display versions of the map will be available at CoastFest. To prevent litter, we will not be providing small, handheld paper maps. If you think you'll need a map during the event, we recommend you print one and bring it with you.
