Can I bring my children to an event?
Given the nature of the Savannah Food & Wine Festival, we are required by the state of Georgia to check IDs for all attendees to verify that they are of legal drinking age to gain access to our events.

You can find our list of partner hotels by clicking on the "Hotel Partners" tab above. Additional partners will be added as they become available. For information on availability and rates, please contact the individual hotels directly.
