Three Music Festivals In Savannah For Spring

December 31, 2015 by Teresa Jacobson

Savannah has three fantastic reasons for music lovers to book now for Spring.

Savannah Music Festival – The Savannah Music Festival has been called one of the best events around the world by USA Today and The London Times.   Running from March 24 – April 9, the festival produces concerts by renowned artists in jazz, classical and a wide variety of American and international roots music in 11 intimate venues throughout Savannah’s historic district.   You can find the full line-up of shows and buy tickets now on the Savannah Music Festival website.  Here are a few artists you don’t want to miss.

Marc Broussard

Steve Riley & Mamou Playboy

Blue Highway

Pink Martini featuring China Forbes

Savannah Stopover Festival – What started as an opportunity for bands to stop and play in Savannah on their way to the prestigious SXSW Festival in Austin, TX, the Savannah Stopover Festival has become a chosen destination for regional and national bands and a must see Savannah Music Festival.  80 bands will fill small to mid-size venues across Savannah’s Historic District March 10 -12.  See the Savannah Stopover Festival website for a full list of bands.  Here are a few acts you won’t want to miss:

Future Birds

No BS Brass Band

Christopher Paul Stelling

 

Tara Feis – The week before Savannah’s legendary St Patrick’s Day celebration, the city kicks off with Tara Feis.   Tara Feis stands out starkly as the family-oriented can’t-miss Irish celebration, saluting authentic Irish heritage and music without the alcohol.  The festival for 2016 will be on Saturday, March 12th in Savannah’s Emmet Park.  One of the most beloved dance and music festivals in Savannah, the event will feature Ciaran Sheehan (Star of Phantom of the Opera) and Cathy Maguire (Star of Ireland in Song).

 

Azalea Inn and Gardens, a Savannah GA bed and breakfast inn, invites you to reserve a room today to begin enjoying the best experiences in our city, which Travel + Leisure Magazine acclaimed as a “World’s Best City.”

Best Savannah Events and Things To Do

October 30, 2011 by Teresa Jacobson

Savannah Things to Do

Evening Arts on the River

Your innkeeper is the door to the best Savannah events and things to do both inside and outside the Hisitoric District.  The staff at Azalea Inn & Gardens are pretty serious about the recommendations we make whether its where to dine or where to fish, what’s the best house tours and scariest ghost haunts, and what will it be: trolley ride or scooter rental?  We don’t have a laundry list tucked under the front desk – we have experiences and memories and passion.   Ask the innkeeper where to eat and she can easily waltz you through the plethora of fine dining experiences each with its own ambience, point out the hands-down favorites for BBQ or burgers, seafood or steaks, and even the best hidden dining spots for the romantic evening of your dreams.  Ask us – make us show off for you!

Fine Dining mixed with Romance your thing?  Ask us to book you for the wine cellar dining experience or perhaps you would prefer to dine in an old  bank vault.  Tired of the same old tourist trap lunch places: have you thought about a delightful mix of international cuisines reflecting the very different cultural backgrounds of the proprietors – we have the answer!  Best Burgers and Beer – now that’s a difficult choice cause we have two favs – one in a turn of the century rehabbed old beer joint while the other features local crops and grassfed beef and homemade ketchup!  Yum.  Okay, I am getting hungry so let’s change the subject.

Is there a music scene in Savannah (Are you kidding!)  Are they any famous houses to tour in Savannah? Will the trolley come to the inn to pick me up – (you betcha!)  I’d rather take a walking tour – what do you recommend? (Give us a minute to narrow down your interests and we will choose the best group or private tour available).  Where’s Bonaventure Cemetary and can I walk there?  Where is Forrest Gump’s bench (not where you expect it).  Is the Bird Girl Statue in a museum?  Are you a Civil War afficionado or is your thing the Revolutionary War? Challenge us to create an intinerary just for you!

Shopping – of every genre imaginable.  Want a pair of custom designed shoe – the owner has four pair – which  means they are very reasonable. Want to meet the Women of Whittaker Street in the Designer District? We know the who, what and where.

Indulge yourself, spend one night or spend several.  Azalea Inn and Gardens, a Savannah Historic Inn, is the place with all the answers – check us out!

What’s there to do in Savannah in the Fall?

Stay at Azalea Inn and Gardens for the Jazz Festival

Jazz and Blues, Forsyth Park Savannah

We are often asked, “What’s there to do in Savannah?” and with a quiet smile we share, and share and share.   The quality and quantity of everyday adventures in Savannah is legend.  Our history and architecture alone justifies a 3-day submersion into culture and food and art.  If this is not enough, or you have been Savannah-friendly for a while now, we will help you find more to love about our city by honing in on some of your other interests and building an itinerary fit for you.
