Welcome to Tybee, a small island with a big heart only 20 minutes from downtown Savannah, GA! We began Tybee Equality Fest to create a safe, diverse, inclusive event on our beautiful, welcoming island! We are bringing a music festival vibe this year, and we are excited about the caliber of musical headliners the festival will highlight. We also look forward to having a parade this year, and continue our tradition of Drag & Burlesque Shows, Swag Bags, Parties, Food, VIP Events, Family-friendly Events, Yoga on the Beach, & so much more!
It’s with a heavy heart that Tybee Equality Festival announces we are postponing our 2020 festival & 2021 until Sept. 2022 due to the pandemic.
After working through plan A, plan B, and then plan C which all had to be scrapped - it's just not viable or safe to deliver the Equality Festival this year.
We are disappointed that we won’t be able to share with the community all of the exciting events and artists we had for 2020 but there is a silver lining - postponing gives us the opportunity to experiment with delivering something very queer and radical next year that we've been thinking about for a while. Stay tuned for more!
We wish the community well - keep looking out for each other.
Lots of love,
Your Tybee Equality Fest Family

(We are leaving this program up to show an example of the wonderful festival that is Tybee Equality Fest,
and so we can all plan to celebrate when it is finally safe to do so again!)
