Savannah First FridaysCome down to River Street on the First Friday and Saturday of each month, all year long, and join in the Savannah First Fridays festivities!

Savannah First Fridays and Saturdays are a great opportunity for you to experience so much of what makes Savannah the thriving, special city it is. The First Friday of each month brings the best of what Savannah has to offer out and onto River Street for all to enjoy – food and drink, live entertainment, art, crafts, fireworks, and more, all in the great outdoor venue of Savannah’s beautiful riverfront!

Best of all, other events and festivals are often timed to coincide with Savannah First Fridays and Saturdays – and sometimes they just happen that way!

Take this year’s First Friday for July, as an example: Savannah First Fridays almost always include a fireworks display – the First Friday Fireworks presented by Wet Willie’s on Rousakis Riverfront Plaza – but July’s First Friday display may be a bit larger this year due to happenstance: the first Friday is the 4th of July!

Other fun events that occur on one or more of Savannah’s First Fridays throughout the year:
