In celebration of the Uffizi exhibition, the Telfair presents the Mary Telfair Grand Tour featuring rarely exhibited works from Mary Telfair’s collection which she acquired primarily in Italy during her travels abroad.

Tea At Mrs. Davenport’s

Each year I look forward to learning more about history and traditions and one of my favorite Savannah programs is Tea At Mrs. Davenport’s!

Patrons will tour areas of the historic home where tea service took place and will participate in an afternoon tea with costumed interpreters.  The performance requires that guests be able to walk up and down stairs and it’s a wonderful opportunity to see this extraordinary house.

This year, participants will enjoy an improved race course for 5K and 10K that features a new breathtaking route that highlights the historic beauty of Savannah’s neighborhoods. A fun-filled celebration for participants, family, and friends waits at the finish line.  It’s important to note the race registration fees have changed to offer savings for early birds, military, students and children under 12 years.
