Join us to celebrate the founding of the Colony of Georgia, which took place on February 12, 1733. The Georgia History Festival is a must for all History Lovers! Savannah's celebrations to commemorate the event include:
Step back in time at the Colonial Faire and Muster on the weekend of February 9-10th. This event is FREE to the public. It will be held on the historic Wormsloe Plantation. Actors and vendors recreate colonial Savannah, with demonstrations of the old blacksmith shop, firing muskets, and cooking over a fire.
The festival will include the Official Georgia Day Parade on February 12th, 2013 at 10:30 am. The parade begins at Forsyth Park, just steps from The Olde Savannah Inn. The parade route includes a march down the historic Bull Street and will ultimately wind up at City Hall.
The festivities continue with Super Museum Sunday from noon until 4 pm on Sunday February 13, 2013. Over 40 organizations, including the city's history, art and cultural museums, have agreed to take part in the History Festival. Admission to the participating locations for this event is FREE.
