Special Events in Savannah Historic District

February of 1733 saw a fabulous festivity taking place in the city of Savannah. The Colony of Georgia received official recognition on February 12th of that year. An annual celebration started the very next year in 1734 and has continued ever since. The Georgia History Festival Colonial Faire and Muster in Savannah includes re-enactments by costumed actors and various activities common in those early days. For example, visitors can witness musket and cannon firings, music from the time period, cooking demonstrations and interpretations of slave life. All of the festivities happen at Wormsloe State Historic Site.

Boasting itself to have the largest urban landmark Historic District in the entire U.S., Savannah welcomes visitors to enjoy the NOGS Tour of Hidden Gardens that is provided by the Garden Club of Savannah. The month of April is particularly beautiful in the city, and this walking tour will weave guests through eight walled gardens and the Massie School Garden. The event is held annually rain or shine. Casual clothing is recommended, and cameras are welcomed.

In an effort to help showcase the beauty of the city, the Historic Savannah Foundation yearly promotes the SEACREST Race for Preservation. The race was first started in 2006 to help enlighten people to the purpose of the foundation and its ongoing efforts to ensure the preservation of historic neighborhoods of the city. About 200 people took part the first year. At last count, the number has continued to grow, reaching nearly 500. The course takes runners on a breathtaking route through historic Savannah neighborhoods, and participants can choose either 10K or 5K distances.

Children and adults find Christmas On The River to be one of the year's most cherished festivities. The first Saturday in December gives way to a full day of live holiday entertainment, shopping in a charming historical setting, and Santa Claus' arrival.

The Tour of Homes and Gardens, hosted for more than 75 years, gives travelers and residents the chance to view some of the most beautiful homes in Savannah. The historic district contains magnificent colonial residences as remaining masterpieces of the old South. The walking tour allows participants to enter homes and admire furnishings that have been passed down from generation to generation. Additionally, guests can take part in and enjoy seminars, evening events, trolley tours, and fabulous food.
