Celebrate the holidays along Savannah’s Waterfront during Christmas on the River.  This three-day event will take place from Friday, December 8 through Sunday, December 10, 2023 and features live performances, merry melodies and holiday cheer.

A variety of dance and musical acts will be featured on Rousakis Riverfront Plaza at the Arbor Stage. Take time to stroll and shop along the waterfront for some unique gifts available from our River Street merchants! You may even spot Santa who will be taking some time away from his busy schedule to join us on the waterfront.

The highlight of the weekend is the 31st Annual Lighted Christmas Parade on Saturday evening, December 9th.  The parade begins at Plant Riverside District on the west end of River Street at 5:30pm and continues to the east end, then winds its way up to Broughton Street and through City Market.
