Find the best festivals in Mississippi right here in the Delta
In the mood to celebrate something?
Head to the Mississippi Delta, where festival season is in full swing from April ‘til October. Join the party as the Delta celebrates everything from racing catfish to authentic juke joints, international and Mississippi cuisine, fine arts to the mighty Mississippi River. Of course, the born-in-the-Delta blues that made this little ol’ area famous worldwide is honored regularly with a Delta Blues festival more than a few times a year.
From April through June there’s a festival almost every weekend, whether you’re in the mood for a family-friendly arts and crafts show or a rip-roarin’ Delta blues festival
. And hey, it’s the Delta – if there’s not a celebration in progress when you arrive, you’re more than welcome to start your own.
So what are you waiting for? Plan a Mississippi River road trip
and head for the Delta, where the party’s already waiting for you.
