With so many exciting events happening in Savannah during the month of October, you will want to just become a resident for the entire month and not miss a thing! The 30th Annual Oktoberfest on River Street is next weekend, October 4-6th, and it promises to be an extremely fun filled weekend! Oktoberfest is full of Wiener Dog Racing, Bratwurst Tasting, Oomph Dancing and more! There will be a beer garden offering many different beers, food vendors, art exhibitors, live entertainment, Beer Stein Race, Keg Roll Race, Teenie Weenie Race and more family fun all weekend! Oktoberfests happen around the world to give a taste of German fun and excitement.  No one does it better than Savannah on River Street.  The Savannah Morning News will be hosting the Wiener Dog Races, which is sure to be one the biggest hits!

Just a few weeks later, on the weekend of October 25-27, there are two different events happening in Savannah. On Saturday Oct 26 is the Savannah Food Day Festival. Of course Savannah would be a host to a Food Day festival with it's own cultural classics such as soul food, and good southern eats. And during the Savannah Food Day Festival, Daffin Park, which is located next to Historic Grayson Stadium, will be filled with live music, food vendors, over 100 exhibitors, and free workshops. There will be activities for all ages and families including your pets!! You can find out more about this free event at hht://wellfedsavannah.com/foodday.


The other amazing event that weekend spans from Friday Oct 25 - Sunday Oct 27, and it is the Savannah Speed Classic out on Hutchinson Island. This Historic Sportcar Racing event will entertain and amaze all historic automobile lovers. Specific Makes and Models and Series requirements are met by all autos that enter the race and you can be sure that the car enthusiasts will be out and ready to enjoy the weekend!

Trip Advisor's Certificate of Excellence!

kathleen Dupuis - Thursday, September 05, 2013
We are so thrilled to be awarded the Trip Advisor's Certificate of Excellence! What an honor!  We strive to be excellent and then some.  In talking with another Savannah-an the other day, we discussed how nothing is half done in Savannah.  Trees don't grow half-tall, cooks don't use a half-stick of butter, and we don't do half-excellence--we do Excellent and more.
Excellence, to us, means that our guests feel rested, cared for, and like members of extended family when they leave our inn.  We are constantly striving for excellence in our menus, amenities, décor, furnishings, and ambience.  Blessed by this title of Excellence we will continue to make The Olde Savannah Inn a destination of greatness!
