Plan now for the 16th annual Juke Joint Festival in historic Clarksdale, Mississippi — one of the friendliest festivals in the world. Hotel rooms book up fast, so don't wait. The main event is Saturday, April 13, 2019 with related events that Thurs.-Sun., April 11-14. (Can't make it for 2019? Plan to attend on April 18, 2020!)

It's "Half blues festival, half small-town fair and all about the Delta!"

Related Events run Thursday through Sunday, and the main event itself is all day/night Saturday — with 13 daytime music stages, 20+ nighttime venues, 100 blues acts, 100 street vendors (food, arts & crafts, etc.), petting zoo, rock wall, history bus tours, educational events, racing pigs, monkeys riding dogs and much more.

Rain or Shine!

• Folding chairs and blankets welcome, but not attendee tents.

• Friendly dogs on leash ok, but please pick up after Fido​.​

• Sorry, but no coolers or outside beverages; please support our local businesses and festival vendors.​

Thanks y'all!​
