City Market: still Savannah’s “Event Central”

After centuries as one of Savannah’s best-known gathering places, City Market now serves as a top celebration site. This is where hundreds of vows are renewed on Valentine’s Day—and thousands of “Happy New Year” kisses are shared. In fact, almost all holidays—especially Savannah’s world-famous St. Patrick’s Day—are City Market’s prime times.


2016 Events

Let your spouse know you’d do it all over again. Join us in the City Market courtyard as Rev. William Hester leads a romantic ceremony renewing your marriage vows, followed by awards and prizes from City Market shops. It’s the sweetest celebration in town!

*In case of bad weather, we’ll announce a nice indoor venue nearby.*

No city celebrates St. Patrick’s quite like Savannah. And nowhere else in town has a party quite like City Market. The outdoor party covers two spacious blocks and spills into surrounding restaurants, shops and squares. Enjoy three days of entertainment and specials indoors and out (on two stages) starting at 10 am and ending at midnight. Not to be missed!

Savannah’s beautiful spirit becomes even more exquisite during the holiday season, and City Market is no exception. Stroll in the flickering light of 500+ luminaria lining our two-block courtyard, serenaded by Christmas carolers. Drop in for treats in City Market shops and watch for a glimpse of Father Christmas.

Make ornaments! Decorate cookies! Get Grinched (with hair and makeup)! Meet Father Christmas and take a Cinderella carriage tour. All of this, plus face painting, choir music and more add up to a day of fun the whole family can truly enjoy.

Every New Year’s Eve, City Market becomes Savannah’s “celebration central” – and this year promises to be better than ever. Live outdoor music continues throughout the evening and restaurants are open to help you celebrate. Drop in and stroll through the market all evening long. (Restaurants, of course, require New Year’s Eve reservations.) Join us to kick off your best New Year yet.
