Second Saturday of the month in Darien

Join us the second Saturday of every month for arts/crafts, food, music and fun in downtown Darien.

Altamaha Coastal Tours and kayaking
Enjoy a customized kayak excursion and more.

Day Trip or Tour of Sapelo Island
Guided tour, rent bicycles or rent a golf cart.
State tours (best deal on the coast)
Private tours
Guided tours are great for getting to know Sapelo.

Tours will vary depending on the day of the week and ferry schedule. (Hint, Tuesday's and Thursday's are great if you want a bit more time on the island as the ferry returns from the island at 2:30 instead of noon.)

Skipper's Fish Camp

Live Music every Wednesday night at Skipper's Oyster Bar
Always a fun place with good company. Best seafood on the coast!

Waterfront Wine and Gourmet......and wine bar
Sip wine, beer, enjoy tapas plates while watching boats go by on the river and the sun sink into the horizon.
Monthly wine tasting. Live Music Friday & Saturday!

Blue Bay Restaurant
Live music Friday and Saturday nights. Fresh authentic Mexican food with local seafood too.

Fish Dock on the Sapelo River
It just doesn't get any fresher! 
Charlie hand picks snapper, grouper, and sea bass from his own boats for the restaurant. With fresh fish, daily-harvested littleneck clams from his clam farm, Sapelo Sea Farms, and local oysters in season, your biggest challenge will be to decide which to try first.

This will be a Golden 50 years of the Blessing of the Fleet
The Blessing of the Fleet is an annual festival that the Darien/McIntosh County Chamber of Commerce hosts to celebrate our biggest industry, shrimping. This three day fun filled event consists of an art show, various food and drink vendors, arts and crafts, a YMCA 5K, children's activities, a classic car show, nightly live entertainment and a marine parade.

On Sunday we Bless our shrimp boat captains with a safe and prosperous season. Darien's Blessing of the Fleet is the largest on the East Coast! This weekend long festival is a great celebration of food, family and fun that usually draws in a crowd of 30,000+ throughout the weekend. We welcome you to come and join in our fellowship!
