Savannah, Ga., February 2, 2016 – The Georgia Historical Society, sponsors of the annual Georgia History Festival, will kick off the Founding City events in Savannah this weekend with the Georgia History Festival’s Colonial Faire & Muster and Super Museum Sunday.
“These wonderful events fulfill the mission of the Georgia History Festival, which is to make knowledge and education widely accessible to the general public,” said Dr. W. Todd Groce, President and CEO of the Georgia Historical Society.
The weekend will begin with the Colonial Faire & Muster at Wormsloe State Historic Site, Saturday and Sunday, February 6th and 7th from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Visitors can experience the everyday life of colonial times through historical reenactments, cannon firings, demonstrations of cooking and craft techniques, music and dance.
The festivities continue with the Georgia History Festival’s Super Museum Sunday, February 7 from noon until 4:00 p.m., unless otherwise listed. Attendees can experience our state’s rich history and culture as historic sites, house museums, art museums, and other points of interest in Savannah and throughout Georgia open their doors to the public, providing an exceptional opportunity to experience the history in our own backyard. Over sixty cultural institutions participate in this popular annual family event.
Both of these events are free and open to the public thanks to generous support from our sponsors and with additional support from Delta, Gulfstream and the Savannah Morning News.
