It's no secret spring is one of Savannah's most popular seasons. They say that April showers bring May flowers, but Savannah can proudly boast great weather almost all spring long. With that being said, there are tons of activities, festivals and great ways to spend your days whenever you visit this time of year.
Many of the events mentioned in this article have been impacted by COVID-19. For the most up-to-date information regarding Savannah's seasonal events, click here
Savannah St. Patrick’s Day Parade
The annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade is one of Savannah’s most popular events of the year. In fact, it’s the third largest parade in the world! People from far and wide gather in our city to celebrate this fun holiday. Each year the crowds grow larger and the performances more spectacular. The atmosphere is something uniquely Savannah and a day you don’t want to miss!
Instead of strolling along River Street, although that’s a fun activity to do when the weather’s nice, try riding a river boat cruise. The Savannah Riverboat Cruises are the towering yet beautiful red and white ships that dock on River Street. This particular cruise takes you up and down the Savannah River with the option of being a passenger for dinner, lunch/brunch or sunset. Enjoy a delicious meal, entertainment and a beautiful view of Savannah’s historic waterfront!
Prime Time for Music Festivals & Performances
Savannah hosts a variety of festivals throughout the year, and the spring is no exception, especially for music lovers. There’s the Savannah Stopover Music Festival, where hundreds of bands pass through and play on their way to Austin, Texas. Another music festival is the 17-day Savannah Music Festival that celebrates music of all sounds and genres. Classical music lovers will love the Savannah Philharmonic's season grand finale "Mozart's Requiem." No matter your musical preferences, Savannah's springtime event calendar is guaranteed to please!
