Massive Events, is a full service event management company with experience managing some of the largest events in Savannah. The Massive Team has created and managed events for local organizations, businesses, and The City of Savannah, since 2011. For the past five years, Massive Events (formerly Well FED Events) has produced the largest Food Day Festival in the nation and assisted with the production of The City of Savannah’s award winning Earth Day Festival. Massive is now set to launch their third large scale event in 2017, The Southern Family Food and Music Festival. Massive events have continued to define and set the bar for large scale outdoor events in Savannah and continue to attract the most diverse range of attendees, year after year.
Massive works with public and private organizations, government, and neighborhood groups to connect with the public and each other. These relationships last well beyond the events, as people bring their connections and collective knowledge and skills to improve the community. Connections are the “glue” that hold communities together; without them, a community stagnates and the quality of life declines. Massive is committed to sharing good ideas and encourage the community to put these ideas into practice. Massive is committed to developing large scale outdoor events that are free and open to the public, thereby enriching quality of life for all of Savannah.
