I can’t think of a better way to kick off summer in the South than blues, jazz and Bar-B-Que!
Enjoy non-stop live entertainment the last weekend of May (May 31 – June 2) as savory food items and cold drinks are consumed en mass along River Street.
Festival hours are:
Friday noon – 10pm
Saturday 10am – 10pm
Sunday 10am – 7pm
Get ready for the best in local barbeque and live jazz and blues music on Historic River Street.
An annual Savannah favorite, Savannah and surrounding area’s best barbeque joints will come together on beautiful River Street and sell their delicious wares – so you can try them all! Whether you like pulled pork, Brunswick stew, barbeque chicken or smoked ribs, you’re sure to find it at this event. While you’re there, enjoy the sights and sounds of River Street, which for this particular weekend will include live jazz and blues music from talented local musicians. In addition, you should visit River Street’s waterfront plaza full of artisans selling their wares, ranging from simple craft to fine art. Chat with the artists themselves and learn about their inspirations and process.
Added bonus: because it’s the first weekend in June, you can take advantage of First Friday and Saturday activities highlighted by fireworks over the river on Friday night!
If this sounds like your type of good time, come to Savannah for the weekend and stay with us! Our bed and breakfast is in the Historic District of Savannah, about a mile and a half from the River Street Plaza. We have a spacious courtyard with a ‘dipping pool,’ the perfect place to cool your feet after a day of walking and exploring Savannah. Sit and sip your favorite beverage as you cool off from the heat of the day! We’ll see you soon!
