Savannah is too hot and humid for many visitors in August, and festivals and events are very thin on the ground. The oceanfront town of Tybee Island, along with the other sea islands of the Georgia and South Carolina coasts, are more popular destinations in the hottest months of summer.
Event dates are correct as of May 26 2017, but may change at short notice due to weather or other unexpected circumstances. Please check the official event website for the most up-to-date information before planning your trip.
