Suds, Shiraz and Sunshine in Store at Sunset Cove Beer & Wine Fest

Do you know what’s better than a beer and wine festival? A beer and wine festival on a BEACH! That’s exactly what Lanier Islands has in store for visitors of our lakeside resort on Saturday, October 14. Beginning at 1 p.m. inside our beach and boardwalk entertainment district at LanierWorld, we’ll pop the cork on our first EVER Sunset Cove Beer & Wine Fest. 21 and older guests of the event can expect the opportunity to sample from over 100 beers and 25 wines, make purchases and chat with distributors that represent a variety of local breweries, regional wineries and popular national/international beverage producers. Fest attendees can also dance in the sand to live music on the Sunset Cove Stage and watch college football on our 5-Story-High Spectacular Screen. The fun kicks off at 1 p.m. and last call for the Fest is at 5 p.m., but guests are welcome to stay, stroll our ½ mile of white sandy beach, enjoy the view and take your 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 major benefit to hosting a Beer & Wine Fest at Lanier Islands is our access to luxury lodgings and overnight accommodation packages. Not to mention all of the awesome activities you can 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 our 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. So gather a bunch of your favorite “cork dorks” and “beer buddies” and make plans to join us on October 14!


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. In an effort to encourage our guests to drink responsibly, we’re also offering Designated Driver* tickets – which can be purchased at the gate for just $15/person. Designated Drivers will not be served beer or wine, but free bottled water will be made available to them as thanks for the important role they play.
