Holly Jolly Jekyll

This Event Happens: November 24, 2023-January 7, 2024

Jekyll Island transforms for the holiday season every year. Formerly known as the Jekyll Island Tree Lighting and Holidays in History, the new and improved Holly Jolly Jekyll lasts throughout the entire holiday season. 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 storytelling, caroling, craft workshops, and more. Want to meet your favorite holiday friends? Santa, Mrs. Claus, and even the Grinch will make an appearance during this holly jolly season. The best way to see the Jekyll Island lights this Christmas is by carriage ride. Experiencing this twinkling, coastal winter wonderland is a holiday must!
