Savannah In July

Modern artillery in front of the decommissioned Fort Screven, Tybee Island, GA.

Summers in Savannah are hot and humid, with frequent rain showers and storms. Tourism to the city dips in July and August, and there are far fewer festivals and events scheduled for this time of year.

July 4th, nonetheless, is a big weekend in Savannah, with various events and fireworks displays downtown and at Tybee Island, and special Independence Day activities and demonstrations at attractions in the city and its vicinity.

!Event dates are correct as of June 2017, but may change at short notice. Please check the official event website for the most up-to-date information before planning your trip.
