Little Light Music Concerts
Each summer, the lawn of the St. Simons Lighthouse provides a picturesque setting for the Little Light Music Concert Series. Musicians carry tunes across the ocean breeze as the crowd relaxes with friends, family and a picnic. Performances are held on select Sunday evenings in May through September. Concerts are from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m., and tickets are $12 for adults; children under 12 are admitted free of charge. Tickets may be purchased in advance in the Museum Store located at the A.W. Jones Heritage Center, or at the gate the evening of the concert. Check our website or the Coastal Georgia Historical Society Facebook page for news and weather updates during the concert season. Thank you to our 2017 concert sponsors: Brown-Rose Wealth Management, Elegant Island Living, Moore Stephens Tiller, Sea Island Landscaping, Sea Island Properties and Straton Hall Events.
