Picnic in the Park is a beloved Savannah tradition that takes place in Forsyth Park on Sunday, October 4th beginning at 4:00pm. This event celebrates the National Arts and Humanities month by featuring an evening of live music, family and a creative spread of picnics, big and small! The annual free concert is highlighted by a performance by the Savannah Philharmonic that starts at 7:00 pm; as well as a number of featured performers, drawing crowds of as many as 20,000.
Each year, picnickers can enter the “Picnic Contest” where they are encouraged to design an imaginative picnic spread that is inspired by a “Hollywood” theme. All Picnic Contest entrants will be eligible to win an array of prizes.
