Fit Kids Fest

This project was sparked by the increasing prevalence of childhood obesity. This is a one-day event held to encourage healthy lifestyles for children in our community. The committee works with local agencies to encourage healthy eating and exercise. Each year we welcome hundreds of attendees who learn how to live a more active, healthy life.


Due to COVID-19 concerns, the Junior League of Savannah made the difficult decision to cancel the in-person 2021 Fit Kids Fest. Instead, a virtual option is now available! Check out the videos and resources below and share how you’re living a more active, healthy life by tagging the Junior League of Savannah on Facebook and Instagram and using the hashtag #JLSFitKidsFest.
