To engage with and explore all Savannah has to offer, the Congress will take place in multiple unique venues in Savannah's Historic Downtown, and programming will take attendees out into surrounding communities. Learn about the venues below.

The DeSoto

Located in one of the country's largest Historic Landmark Districts, The DeSoto is situated in the heart of Savannah's historic shopping, dining, and theater district, just a short stroll to the River Front and City Market. Surrounded by landscaped gardens and squares, magnificent Southern homes, and architectural gems, this contemporary hotel in the Savannah Historic District is the perfect place to start exploring this coastal city.

Knights of Columbus

Located across the street from the DeSoto, the Knights of Columbus is a long-standing institution in the City of Savannah, established in 1902.   

Savannah Theatre

First opened in 1818, the Savannah Theatre, located on Savannah's Chippewa Square, is one of the United States' oldest continually-operating theatres. The Theatre has undergone significant renovations following major hurricane damage in August 1898, and fire damage in 1906 and 1948. Following the 1948 fire, the building was transformed to its current Art Deco style.

Johnny Mercer Theatre


Named after the singer-songwriter and Savannah native, the Johnny Mercer Theatre is located in the Savannah Civic Center. The Theatre and Civic Center play host to over 900 events and performances a year.

The Jepson Center

Devoted to contemporary art and rotating exhibitions, the strikingly beautiful Jepson Center, designed by Moshe Safdie and opened to the public in 2006, features over 7,500 square feet of gallery space and a 220-seat auditorium.
