SAVANNAH, Ga. (WTOC) - The 2020 Savannah Food & Wine Festival scheduled for November has been canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

According to festival organizers, purchased tickets will be refunded upon request or can be rolled over to the festival scheduled for 2021. Ticket holders who opt to credit their ticket to the 2021 festival will receive a 20 percent discount code for any additional 2021 festival tickets, according to a news release from festival staff.

“At the end of the day, what we care the most about is keeping our friends and neighbors working, especially as we head into the holiday season. So that’s a byproduct that sometimes people don’t always take the time to think about, and that’ll sting a little bit,” said Visit Savannah President, Joe Marinelli.

The 2021 festival is scheduled to take place in locations throughout Savannah on Nov. 8-14.
