Smart folks and cool kids shop early for the Cookie Tour every year. If you’d like to count yourself among them, get your tickets for this year’s Tour by the end of September to get the lowest possible rate. Tickets are available for $15 each until the end of the month. They will go to $20 in October and $25 in November. You can purchase tickets at your favorite Historic District bed and breakfast, the Fernandina Beach Public Library, the newly-renovated visitors’ center in the railroad depot, the Chamber of Commerce office in the Gateway business park, or online here. Please note that if you pay by credit card, a service fee will be added to allow us to make the highest possible donation to the Friends of the Library, this year’s Tour beneficiary.
Even smarter folks take advantage of the limited number of VIP Packages offered for the Tour each year. Each inn starts with five VIP Packages – and once they’re gone, no more are added. These packages consist of a donated gift certificate for a future midweek stay, two tickets to this year’s Tour, and a copy of Sunshine Mornings at the Inns of Amelia Island, the Association’s cookbook. VIP Packages are available online only. If your selected inn does not show up in the list, all packages for that inn have been sold. Please read the details of each inn’s certificate before purchasing the package.
Tickets and VIP Packages purchased online will be mailed beginning in October. Don’t forget that the date for the Tour has changed this year; it will be Saturday, December 12th, from 12 pm -5 pm. We look forward to seeing you all there. Be sure to get by the Amelia Island Williams House to greet the new owners, Maria and Chris Page.
