Tuesday not only began a new month for us, but also marked the beginning of Black History Month and the kick off of Savannah’s 22nd Annual Black Heritage Festival! This event is free, opened to the public, and runs through Sunday, February 13th.
Every year there are acticities for all ages to enjoy, and all sorts of wonderful exhibits and shows to see. Just check out last year’s photo gallery for a taste! The City of Savannah and Savannah State University present this festival and there’s a lot to see and do, from visual and performing arts, crafts, cultural education, and music to dancing and historic tours. There will also be a Health and Wellness fair! Visit the official festival website for more information on the calendar of events and make plans to enjoy all the goings-on!
One highlight not to be missed in the day-long Grand Festival Day celebration. This year it’s planned for February 12th in Savannah’s Civic Center’s Martin Luther King Jr. Arena. It’s sure to be fabulous fun! So, if you are craving a little culture, food, and fun, Savannah’s Black Heritage Festival is definitely something to check out!
