November Events

kathleen Dupuis - Saturday, October 26, 2013
Savannah is going to be a happening place this month. With so many events going on, our city is the place to be. For those of you running, walking, or watching the #Rock and Roll Marathon on November 9, you'll want to pamper your worn muscles with our extra comfy beds at The Olde Savannah Inn.  #Foodies will enjoy the Savannah Food and Wine Festival from Nov 11-17. The festival will be packed with activities like a farm to table dinner, chef competition, wine tasting, and more! Here's how the Festival's own Amy Brock describes it:
"The 2013 Savannah Food & Wine Festival is a week-long celebration of wine and food set amongst the towering Spanish moss draped oak trees in historic Savannah Georgia.
Nothing exudes Southern hospitality quite like the City of Savannah.  From its bountiful historic district of antebellum homes, to the numerous parks and beautiful Squares.  Savannah’s famous River Street is the perfect backdrop for several Festival events, where once upon a time pirates and buccaneers strolled.
In addition to James Beard Award winning chefs, the Savannah Food & Wine Festival will feature some of the area’s best and most beloved and talented chefs. We’ve selected three of our favorite recipes to share with you in honor of the Festival. Learn a little about each of our chefs here.
Join us for the Savannah Food & Wine Festival, November 11-17, 2013. Tickets and information available here."
The month will round off with The Westin Savannah Harbor's Gingerbread Village competition.  The competition includes adult (18 & over) and student (17 & under) divisions, and is open for anyone to participate. You can view this spectacular display in the Westin's lobby from Saturday, November 22 through December 30, 2013. It is free and open to the public.  This event is visited by thousands each year to see the exquisite and charming hand made gingerbread buildings that look good enough to eat.
If you're in town for Thanksgiving, enjoy your holiday meal on a dinner cruise. Here is some information from thewebsite:

Fall Events

kathleen Dupuis - Monday, October 14, 2013
Savannah in the fall is one of the most beautiful locations.  The weather is beautiful, crisp, and the sights are extra enjoyable since the humidity is low. The area is full of festivals, races, and other great attractions for this southern mecca. 
Next weekend October 18, 19, and 20th is the Great Ogeechee Seafood Festival in Richmond Hill, Georgia. This yearly festival is known to the area as a seafood lovers' paradise. Laden with restaurant booths showing off their finest dishes of seafood, bbq, and other southern specialties like kettle corn and peach cobbler, this festival is a hit with families, retirees, teenagers, and young adults. The festival tops off each evening with live music entertainment on the big stage. This year they are boasting the appearances of Collective Soul and Drivin' and Cryin'.   For more information, go tohttp://www.goseafoodfestival.com/.
Dust off your running shoes as Savannah is hosting two upcoming races: the Rock n Roll Marathon in November and the Bridge Run in December. It's not too late to train for those amazing events! The Rock n Roll Marathon is a hit each year as great entertainment is provided every mile or so for the runners to help spur them on to the finish line. For more information, visit http://runrocknroll.competitor.com/savannah.  The Bridge Run is the big hill run of the Savannah area.  With most of the land being flat, the Bridge Run is the chance for runners to experience "the climb"! For more information, visit http://savannahriverbridgerun.com/
If running isn't your thing, take advantage of the great historic tours and trolley tours of Savannah without the sweat, heat, and humidity of the summer months!
Enjoy your time here even more, by taking advantage of our inn decorated to the fullest for each season!
