One of the best things about living around Savannah is the impressive number of activities and events that take place in our local area. This month we are going to be starting a recurring segment that shares with you a few handpicked events that we think are more than worthy of your consideration this March!
Let’s get started.
Savannah Stopover Music Festival
March 7th – March 9th
Various Locations, Savannah’s Historic District
The Savannah Stopover music festival started off as a “warm-up” or a stopover for musicians who were making their way to Austin, TX to be at the world-famous SXSW music conference. The excellent transportation links of Savannah (proximity to the I95 and I10) made it the perfect place for an event like the Savannah Stopover to form.
However, as time has gone on, the Savannah Stopover has become a fully-fledged festival with musicians from across the world deciding to make the Savannah-based event a destination, instead of a pitstop. From March 7th until March 9th you’ll be able to see over 80 world class musicians take to the stage throughout the historic district of the city in a variety of intimate and medium-sized venues.
March Of Dimes Shamrock Run
Ellis Square, Savannah
Don’t Forget: Dogs are more than welcome to take part in the event, so bring your pooch along too!
1000 Lights Water Lantern Festival
Lake Mayer Park, Savannah
The internationally renowned 1000 Lights Water Lantern Festival will be visiting us in Savannah this year on March 9th. It’s a truly magical experience that involves writing personal messages of hopes, dreams, and memories on thousands of lanterns that will float along the water gently as the sun starts to set. It’s a surreal sight to behold, and if you’ve never experienced something like this before, it’s certainly one to add to your shortlist. Gates open at 4.30pm and live entertainment and “high stakes bingo” will be taking place until the official lantern lighting starts at 7.30pm.
Tip: Outside food and drink is very welcome at this event (but no outside alcohol is permitted) and packing a blanket to sit on is strongly recommended.
Hilton Head Wine And Food Festival
March 11th – March 17th
Hilton Head Island
If you love good food (or a glass of wine or two) then you’re not going to want to miss the hugely popular Hilton Head Wine And Food Festival this year. A wide range of local, national, and international chefs and wine experts will descend on the island to provide you with some of the finest food and drink you’ll taste all year. There will be competitions, events, tasting sessions, and a wide range of dedicated specialty menus and wine lists on offer – each more delicious than the last.
Tip: The “Sip And Stroll” is one of the most popular events at the festival which involves grabbing a glass of your favorite wine, and strolling along the participating shops at the Harbour Town Yacht Basin (all of which are providing very generous discounts for the sippers and strollers). Booking tickets in advance is strongly recommended.
