The Westobou River, the former name of the Savannah River, was derived from the Westo Indians who migrated to Augusta in the 1660's. The Savanna Indians defeated the Westo Indians in 1680, and the river that now runs through downtown Augusta remains named after the Savanna Indians, the Savannah River. Westobou Festival puts a spotlight on the Central Savannah River Area through a celebration of national and international talent. The festival prides itself on its ability to connect our audience with everything from award winning premier artistic performances to rock concerts.
