Festivals in Deep South USA

Deep South USA is best known for its richly diverse music scene but there are literally hundreds of festivals embracing cuisine, literature, film, comedy, sports and just about anything worth celebrating.

Festivals in Kentucky

Wherever you are and at whatever time of the year there is always something to celebrate in Kentucky! Don't be surprised if you stumble upon a Bourbon festival, Kentucky bluegrass festival or one of many other Kentucky music and food festivals such as the W.C. Handy Blues & Barbecue Festival in Henderson. When you leave you'll want to listen to bluegrass music and you might be humming a happy tune.

Festivals in Mississippi

Blues, country, rock 'n' roll. It all started right here. And on any given night, it's still going strong. From the Coast to the Delta to the northern hills, singers and musicians make juke joints, clubs and concerts halls rock. Fans come from around the world to sit down front and see the real thing - live and a-live - as we say! But there's more than music to Mississippi. There's every conceivable kind of celebration from the De Soto Country Fair and Rodeo to Cruisin' the Coast, which features hundreds of classic American cars and roadsters.
