Savannah In November

Thick ivy and ornamental ironwork on the facade of a Savannah, GA house.

Fall is an ideal time to visit Savannah. November’s weather is often warm (but not hot) and mostly dry, and perfect for walks around the Historic District’s parks and squares.

The Rock ’n’ Roll Marathon impacts visits to Savannah on the first weekend in November, as many streets are shut off for the race and the city is crowded. The city’s other annual November festivals are smaller, mostly focused around food and culture.

Thanksgiving marks the start of the holiday season, and many holiday lights shows, holiday-themed performances and other seasonal events and activities in Savannah begin in late November, carrying through into the main festive period in December.

See Savannah events in: December, January, February, March, April, May, June, July, August, September, October
