Great-tasting October Event: Savannah Jewish Food Festival in Forsyth Park

Bring your empty stomach to one of the most popular and unique food festivals is coming to Forsyth Park on Sunday, October 28, 2012:  the Shalom Y'all Jewish Food Festival!  Our Savannah inns offer first-class accommodations and amenities during this annual event.

Now in its 24th year, this tasty event offers food, music, dance, and kids shows from 11am to 4pm.  Getting into the park is free - but you'll want to buy plenty of $1 food tickets to taste your way through the many booths serving such treats as: sandwiches, noodles, potato latkes, blintzes, strudel, challah, sodas, a variety of other kosher foods... and of course homemade sweets!

You don't have to be Jewish to enjoy all the great food and fun!  Over 10,000 attendees are expected, meaning that lines for tickets can be long.  But fear not - closer to the time of the festival, advance tickets will be available at discounted prices.  You can pick up your pre-purchased tickets before the event, and avoid waiting in those pesky lines!

The Festival is hosted by Congregation Mickve Israel, a Reform synagogue that is the third oldest in America at 279 years.  The church itslef is the only neo-Gothic style synagogue in America, and tours are available to see this amazing building and in-house museum.

Another reason to stay at a Romantic Inns of Savannah bed and breakfast:  three of our inns are adjacent to the park, meaning you can pretty much walk out the front door and be there within seconds.  Even if you are here for another reason, the scents of the festival will draw you right over!  The remainder of our current member establishments are well within a mile of Forsyth Park, allowing you to work off some of the great food during the short walk to the event!  So skip the hotels and choose your favorite historic inn during your Savannah food festival vacation!
