Savannah Black Heritage Festival, Irish Festival among events moving forward

Loading ....


Pandemic or no pandemic, Savannah is now kicking off its bustling spring season of festivals.

While we are obviously missing out on vital opportunities to gather as a community and get to know more of our neighbors in face-to-face settings, the altered schedules present some opportunities that might benefit local culture in the long run.

Editor Andria Segedy took a deep dive this week into the lineup for Savannah Black Heritage Festival, which runs from Feb. 5-21.

The 32nd annual festival’s emphasis on virtual rather than live events has prompted a significant website upgrade and plans for high quality video streaming. Highlights will likely include a gospel concert featuring Demetrius West on Feb. 7 and the Future of Jazz Concert along with a tribute to the late Ben Tucker on Feb. 16.
