Juke Joint Festival
April 12, 2014 - April 12, 2014
It's a positive event for everyone in Clarksdale. It's good for families, businesses, musicians and tourists alike. The festival itself combines an international "blues festival" with a community-minded "small-town fair," creating a strong and memorable event like no other in the universe. It's organized by the Clarksdale Downtown Development Association (CDDA) and staffed by enthusiastic volunteers. This "half small-town fair, half blues festival" does more than simply entertain attendees -- though it definitely does that, too! It aims to educate and enlighten native Deltans and blues tourists alike through a series of performances, exhibits, and presentations involving music, art, storytelling, film, and children's events. The event mixes visitors with locals and showcases the economic power of cultural tourism, turning average Deltans into ambassadors for the region.
