AquaCurean is a gourmet seafood, spirits and music celebration that took place at the Westin Savannah Harbor Golf Resort & Spa on August 28 - 30, 2015.


As the name of the event “AquaCurean” implies water and epicurean, the event will showcase some of best seafood and hand-crafted spirits from Savannah and around the country. The AquaCurean Challenge includes a seafood recipe competition and a hand-crafted cocktail competition.


The mission of this event is to create a community event that draws participation from the local and national stages. Moreover, its goal is to raise money for children’s charities here in Savannah with this years event raising $10,000 for the foundation.


The Savannah Harbor Foundation makes a commitment to bettering our community and those who live within it. The commitment is funded by events like this and attendees who share the vision for engaged and uplifted neighborhoods.
