Tybee Polar Bear Plunge. This event has become a Tybee tradition, held every January 1 at noon at the pier on the south end of the island. Plan to be with us next year, invigorating your soul with a cleansing (and cold) plunge into the Atlantic. Come take the plunge, we are freezing for a reason. Come for the camaraderie, the fun, your face will hurt from smiling so much. It's the premiere family fun event. Funny hats and costumes are strongly encouraged. Get a group together of 4 or more for the new Gang of Goof's competition to win the coveted Le Goofs trophy. Fun will be had by all!!!

Tybee’s annual celebration of America’s birthday. Come early and plan to stay late as this is one of Tybee’s busiest days of the year and the island fills up fast. The show starts around dark thirty (around 9:15pm). The fireworks are staged on the pier, but they are easily viewed from any of Tybee’s eastern beaches.
