The Tillandsia Festival boasts music, dancing, theater and visual arts in a number of Glynn County locations. The following is a list of the major special events on Jekyll Island.

The Jekyll Island Bluegrass Festival – usually held the last week of December at the Jekyll Island Convention Center.

Island Treasures – This is a special event that takes place January 1st through February 28 where visitors to Jekyll Island can comb the ten miles of beach for art glass fishnet floats. In the past, visitors to the island were often thrilled to find these beautiful, glass, blue and green orbs lying on the beach that were lost by fishing crews who used them to keep their nets afloat. Today, they are all commissioned art glass, stamped with the year and numbered and signed by the artist who created them. Upon finding the one-of-a-kind treasures, visitors can take them to the Jekyll Island Welcome Center to be registered and receive a Certificate of Authenticity.
