Mississippi Music Festivals
Jazz & Heritage to Blues in the Park
It’s hard to decide what Mississippi does best. Is it food and historic sites, or is it scenic wilderness and beaches? While these are all shining examples of why Mississippi is on the map – other than separating Louisiana and Arkansas – music carries the weight around here.
Your attention is split between hot jazz and soul-crushing blues at all times. Follow the famed Mississippi Blues Trail, tour the legendary Mississippi Delta, or even visit Elvis Presley's birthplace in Tupelo. Stick around town for the Tupelo Elvis Festival in early June for the full experience.
Of course, blues and jazz aren’t the only sounds to float through the warm, Mississippi air this summer. Check out the CelticFest Mississippi in Jackson at the end of the summer – where you can be sure to grasp yet another culture in the borders of the Magnolia State. Hear Celtic stories and music, shop the markets, and pack away as much boxty as you can handle.
You can even check out the Highway 61 Blues Festival in Leland to cap off the summer in September. At this point, summer in Mississippi should sound like (a wide variety of) music to your ears.
