Wine & Jazz Festival

America’s Second Harvest has been a leader in initiatives to reduce childhood hunger since establishing the Kids Cafe program in 1989. More than 1,800 local children who are at-risk for hunger receive a hot, nutritious, evening meal in a safe, nurturing environment through the program which is designed to assist these children in their personal and academic achievements and thereby end the cycle of poverty.

Event-goers will enjoy the beautiful riverside surrounds of the Westin’s property, with breathtaking views of the city as they travel the world with Wine and Jazz.

The Savannah Wine & Jazz Fest promises the opportunity to sample & savor an expansive selection of wines spanning several continents and numerous vintages. Each sampling station affords an educational as well as a tasting opportunity. For those with even more refined tastes, the Connoisseur’s Corner features only very high end wines.

Some of Savannah’s finest Jazz musicians will be featured with multiple performances throughout the day, including:

Huxsie Scott

Eric Jones Trio

Gina Reneé

Ben Tucker Trio

Coastal Jazz Association All-Stars

Lavon Stevens Trio

Food selections from Aqua Star will be available as well as grill items.
