Savannah, GA In October 2022


October in Savannah brings the best of everything the city has to offer: great sightseeing weather, a wide range of festivals and events, and access to all of Savannah’s attractions and things to do.

October is one of the busiest months in Savannah’s festival calendar, with several events on over most weekends, from the extremely well-attended free outdoor philharmonic concert in Forsyth Park at the beginning of the month, through varied food, music and heritage festivals, to the Savannah Film Festival near its end.

Halloween, at the end of the month, is a popular time to visit Savannah, by reputation one of the most haunted cities in the country. Many local attractions put on special Halloween-themed events, most of them aimed at families with children.

Savannah’s ghost tours attract especially large crowds over the Halloween period; it is advisable to make reservations in advance if you want to attend one.
