With all the events and happenings throughout the South during March, the month roars in like a lion. 

The fun starts immediately with such festivities as the Sip and Swine BBQ Festival (March 1 -2) in Lawrenceville, Georgia and the Shadows-on-the-Teche Fall Arts and Crafts Fair (March 2) in New Iberia, Louisiana.

Foodies rejoice because March brings out some tasty events, such as the Dahlonega (Georgia) Chocolate Crawl (March 4 - 10), the Charleston (South Carolina) Food + Wine Festival (March 6 - 10), the Wurstfest 2024 (March 22 -24) in Hermann, Missouri, and the World Championship Crawfish Etouffee Cook-Off (March 23) in Eunice, Louisiana.

For those who enjoy art festivals, there's the Outdoor Art Show (March 15 -17) in Fairhope, Alabama, the Winter Park (Florida) Sidewalk Art Festival (March 15 -17), and the Bayou City Art Festival (March 23 - 24) in Houston.

See the pretty flowers (and more) during the Mobile (Alabama) Azalea Trail Festival (various March dates), the Valdosta-Lowndes Azalea Festival (March 9 - 10), and the International Cherry Blossom Festival (March 15 -24) in Macon, Georgia, and marvel at the blooms at Dallas Arboretum and Botanic Garden, Cheekwood Gardens in Nashville, Tennessee, and The Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden in Richmond, Virginia.

Don't forget about St. Patrick's Day, either! Dublin, Georgia, has things going on throughout March. Parades and festivals are throughout the South, in places like Savannah, Georgia (March 16); North Myrtle Beach, South Carolina (March 16); Wilmington, North Carolina (March 16); and Jackson, Mississippi (March 23).

There's no doubt about it - March is something else in the South, especially when it comes to things to do. For more, check out Southern Hospitality Magazines's calendar.
