Savannah’s spirit becomes even more exquisite during the holiday season, and City Market is no exception. Stroll beneath holiday lights, taste sweet treats in City Market shops and find the perfect gifts for your loved ones, all while being serenaded by Christmas carolers. 

There are also plenty of events to look forward to during City Market’s holiday season. Children will have the chance to make ornaments, decorate cookies and get Grinched (a tradition of Grinch-inspired hair and makeup!). Kids of all ages can also meet Father Christmas and take a Cinderella carriage tour. All this plus face painting, choir music and more add up to a day of fun the whole family can truly enjoy. Look at City Market’s calendar to learn more.

The Forsyth Park fountain is certainly beautiful year-round, but it’s even more dazzling at Christmastime. Festive wreaths, bright bows and garland frame the already picturesque fountain. During the holiday season, the Forsyth Park fountain often becomes the location for family Christmas cards and engagement photos. It’s a Christmas lover’s dream come true!

Broughton Street.

At Christmastime, the shops, boutiques and restaurants along Broughton Street decorate inside and out. Bright, sparkling lights are streamed from building to building all along Broughton Street creating a picture-perfect backdrop for holiday shoppers.

The festive season, called “Holidays on Broughton,” also offers seasonal events for all ages and interests. From the return of a beloved children’s toy store in a pop-up experience to photos with Santa and musical performances, eventgoers can count on an experience that will prove magical year after year. 

Throughout the whimsical holiday event, many of the unique and eclectic shops along Broughton Street will offer extended hours of operation and holiday shopping incentives. It’s surely the most wonderful time of the year on Broughton Street!
