Savannah’s seasonality features moderate weather and year-round appeal — making meeting in the lighter seasons ideal.
To help you plan, here’s what your attendees can expect whenever they visit and meet in Savannah, GA, from the temps to the events!
March - June
With the azaleas in bloom and temperatures that sit comfortably in the 70s, Savannah wears spring beautifully. As one of the destination’s most popular times of the year, the weather is pleasant nearly all season long, allowing for abundant group activities and outdoor opportunities.
Whether you stroll through the squares lined with flowers, bask on the Tybee Island beach, or attend a music festival, there is something for everyone in the group to enjoy before, during, and after meetings.
Add a little fun and a lot of green to your meeting when you plan it around one of Savannah’s most popular events of the year — the annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade. Held on March 17, it’s the third-largest parade in the world and features spectacular performances and an exciting, cheerful atmosphere felt around the city.
June - September
It wouldn’t be summer in the South without the sunshine! During this season, your attendees could expect occasional afternoon thunderstorms and temperatures typically hitting in the 80s and 90s, so they will want to dress cool and comfortable, stay hydrated and consider having a small umbrella on hand for those quick pop-up storms.
The options are countless when it comes to finding ways for your group to enjoy Savannah’s sunny summer days. Take advantage of them by incorporating some fun summertime activities and top events of the season into your itinerary.
Plan an off-site outing or a day of team building at Savannah’s beach, Tybee Island, which is just a short 20-minute drive away. Another plus is that many of Savannah’s accommodations also have pools for attendees to beat the heat of the summer sun and cool off during the downtime between meetings.
Head to one of Savannah’s beer breweries and take a tour of the facilities while learning about craft beer, or relax on a breezy rooftop bar along the riverside with a cocktail in hand and views that are grand.
