CoastFest 2017

Saturday October 7, 2017

10:00 AM - 4:00 PM





At the regional headquarters campus of the GA DNR in Brunswick, GA, the first Saturday in October is known as “CoastFest Saturday”.

Since 1995, the annual event has been hosted by the Georgia Coastal Management Program to celebrate the state’s coastal natural resources.

More than 80 environmental, educational research and resource exhibitors from around the southeast join with science-based entertainers in an atmosphere of fun.

Visitors of all ages learn about Georgia’s unique coastal environment in exhibits from touch tanks with marine life to coastal weather … native plants to horseshoe crabs . . . water conservation to archeology . . . herpetology, geology, kayaking, fishing and shoreline restoration!

In 2014, the 20th Anniversary of CoastFest set a new attendance record with over 9,600 visitors to the six-hour event - bringing total attendance since 1995 to over 100,000 people.
