Savannah Stopover Music Festival
Mar 05, 2015 to Mar 07, 2015
Savannah Stopover Music Festival capitalizes on the logistical good fortune of Savannah, Georgia’s proximity to interstates 95 and 10 by presenting traveling musicians with a welcoming place to play en route to Austin’s prestigious SXSW Music Conference.

Offering three days of musical discovery, music fans can hop from venue to venue, beer in hand, keeping track of all of their favorite new acts (yep, you can drink in the streets here, as long as you stay in the historic district).

“Savannah is known for wonderful dinning, but our staff all agreed there are some incredible places in the hostess city to get desert, said Carrie Bligh, Executive Director of the Savannah Waterfront Association. Last year was the inaugural event and the inspiration for it was just around the corner. âThe theme was created last year when the staff took a much needed afternoon praline break,â added Bligh.
Participating vendors include: Baked by Rach, Capital Bee Company, Daddy O’s, Indulge Coffee, Chocolat by Adam Turoni, Leopold’s Ice Cream, Repicci’s Italian Ice of Savannah, and Toffee Dolce. Regional artisans will also be set up along Rousakis Riverfront Plaza displaying and selling their handcrafted works.
So for March First Friday & Saturday skip dinner and go straight for dessert! Weekend festivities will kick off on Friday, March 6 from 4-10pm with First Friday Fireworks presented by Wet Willie’s at 9:30pm. This sweet celebration continues on Saturday from 10am-10pm.
This event is hosted by the Savannah Waterfront Association and proudly sponsored by Wet Willie’s, Capital A Productions, Savannah Coca-Cola, WJCL-abc, TravelHost Savannah, and Alpha Media.
