Bluffton SC to Savannah GA for Seafood Fest 2017
Sure we have our own terrific festivals on the South Carolina side of the river and in Bluffton, SC and in Hilton Head Island, SC but our area is so fortunate to have fun festivals close by so, this weekend, be sure to head to Savannah, GA and Wilmington Island for the - DRUM ROLL - Savannah Gourmet Seafood and Spirit Festival (formerly known as Aquacurean Festival (though am guessing that was too confusing for folks).
We're still in a month with no "R" soooooooo no oysters but plenty of other things to eat and drink! Here's the lineup for this 4th year!
Thursday, August 17, 2017 is The Chefs' Table held in the Grand Ballroom at the Westin Savannah Harbour. This upscale event is elegant and kicks off the entire event. With 10 chefs vying for your favor who could ask for more?
Friday, August 18, 2017 brings the Oyster Roast & Spirits Showcase but unfortunately, this is SOLD OUT! Read up on this too and perhaps next year you'll be able to enjoy!
Saturday, August 19, 2017 is my personal favorite - the old namesake Aquacurean Challenge & Coastal Pop-up! This casual affair tempts you with offerings from 15 of Savannah's best restaurants as well as local distilleries, brewers, and distributors. All taking place on the lawn at the Westin Harborfront as well.
CAPPING OFF THE WEEKEND on Sunday, August 20, 2017 is the Fresh Catch & Cocktails Jazz Brunch - Savannah is notorious for its terrific music and there are some great groups around - this part of the festival is laid back and relaxed too and will make you glad you took the Westin Savannah Harbourfront Hotel up on it's wonderful offers to stay there for this whole long weekend.
All of this food, fun, and frivolity is for a good cause - The Savannah Harbourfront Foundation donates proceeds to children's charities throughout Savannah and last year contributed $10,000!
If you'd like to live close by so that you can go to this festival too - be sure to give me a call!
