We promote our music festival regionally and draw attendees from along the Mississippi Gulf Coast, from Memphis, and from along the I-10 corridor through Northwest Florida, Alabama and Louisiana. Each year our festival has grown tremendously. Over 30,000 folks enjoyed the music while attending last year’s traditional one day festival. This year we have expanded the festival to two days.

We also have out community Entertainment Stage which features local bands playing to gain exposure on the coast, as well as, coast school and community entertainment groups.
