SAVANNAH, GA – July 12, 2019 –Savannah Philharmonic is once again gearing up for Savannah’s largest single-day outdoor music event, Picnic in the Park, which is slated for Sunday, Oct. 6, 2019 in historic Forsyth Park. This nonprofit organization is inviting the public to help develop a celebratory themed slogan for the annual community-wide concert and celebration. 

This year’s Picnic in the Park would like a creative slogan, inspired by the word ‘kaleidoscope.’ Envision the event as a multi-faceted “kaleidoscope” of music, cultures, partnerships, and family friendly activities.  

This contest has been launched on Savannah Philharmonic’s Facebook page (, so anyone can enter the competition by submitting their ideas for a suitable theme. Simply search the Savannah Philharmonic’s page for the contest announcement and enter your slogan suggestion in the comments section of that post.  

The contest winner will be treated to VIP seating at Picnic in the Park, and will receive six tickets to the Holiday Spectacular Family Matinee concert on Saturday, Dec. 7, 2019, a $100 Enmarket gas card, and will be invited to join the judging panel for the best picnic site on the day of the event. The winner will also be recognized on social media and from the stage during Picnic in the Park. Entries may be submitted on the Savannah Philharmonic’s Facebook page through July 31 for a chance to win. The single winner will be announced on August 2. 

In the spirit of the event, attendees are encouraged to bring a picnic, as well as participate in the themed picnic venue contest, which always results in many impressive and elaborate gourmet smorgasbords, accented by inspiring décor that cleverly reflects the theme. 

Since its inception over 30 years ago, Picnic in the Park has served as one of Savannah’s most popular and well-attended community events. Over 18,000 people are expected to enjoy this year’s festivities, which are free and open to the public. This longtime autumn tradition is the perfect opportunity for Coastal Empire residents to relax with friends, family and colleagues beneath a starry southern sky, as the Philharmonic provides beautiful music for the evening. There will be beverage and food vendors as well as food trucks for attendees to enjoy at the park. 

The Army’s 3rd Infantry Division Color Guard will take part in this exciting event and the 3rd ID will again provide their salute cannons as part of the program. Savannah Philharmonic will take the stage at 7 p.m., following an afternoon of lively performances by area school bands and choruses as well as local musicians. 

The 2019 Picnic in the Park event will be presented by the following sponsors: Enmarket, the City of Savannah, Georgia Power, HunterMaclean, Stage Front, Gulfstream, Wet Willie’s, Cordasco & Company P.C., The Eichholz Law Firm, Corona, Service Brewing Co., and Leopold’s Ice Cream.
