Sunset Cove Beer & Wine Fest at Lanier Islands
What could be better than a Beer and Wine Festival? A Beer and Wine Festival on a BEACH! Lanier Islands is proud to debut its first ever Sunset Cove Beer & Wine Fest – complete with more than 100 beers and over 25 wines to sample, opportunities to chat with the distributors and make purchases, live music on the Sunset Cove Stage and college football on the 5-Story-High Spectacular Screen. Held inside LanierWorld, the fun kicks off at 1 p.m. on Saturday, October 14. Last call for the Fest is at 5 p.m., but guests are welcome to stay, stroll the ½ mile of white sandy beach, enjoy the view and take their pick from a full menu of favorites at Sunset Cove Beach Café until 11 p.m.
The football game and entertainment lineup for Sunset Cove Beer & Wine Fest on October 14 is:
- University of Georgia Bulldogs vs. University of Missouri Tigers Game
- Whispering Gypsies take the Sunset Cove Stage from noon to 4 p.m.
- Auburn University Tigers vs. LSU Tigers Game
Another benefit of having a Beer & Wine Fest at Lanier Islands is the access to luxury lodgings, overnight accommodation packages and loads of activities to enjoy the following day that range from 18 holes of golf on a lakeside course to exploring the resort via zipline canopy tour or on horseback. Due to the popularity of this event, rooms in the resort’s Legacy Lodge are already sold out. However, additional rooms remain at the lakeside Legacy Villas and Legacy LakeHouses – both of which prove ideal for a group. Tickets to the Sunset Cove Beer & Wine Fest are $35/person in advance, $40/person after October 5 and $50/person on the day of the event. For those who hurry, the first 250 tickets are just $25/person. Tickets afford guests access to the beach, Spectacular Screen, live entertainment and all beer, wine and cider samples. Food will be available for purchase at an additional cost. Designated Driver* tickets can be purchased at the gate for just $15/person.
