Westobou Gallery

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. Westobou maintains a high quality of performances appealing to all.Celebrating excellence in the arts, the festival includes an array of performances and exhibitions featuring distinct talent in the disciplines of dance, film, music, spoken words and visual arts. Westobou Festival gives audiences the opportunity to experience the power of art within the backdrop of our exciting city.
