2015 Juke Joint Festival news and info

The Juke Joint 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 non-profit Clarksdale Downtown Development Association (CDDA) and staffed by enthusiastic volunteers. Activities include real-deal blues concerts in authentic juke joints as well as our 5k/8k Run and Walk, outdoor pig races, local history tours, an art exhibit and even monkeys riding dogs. The idea is to celebrate Clarksdale’s cultural heritage by supporting and promoting what we have to offer today…which is a lot. The event mixes visitors with locals and showcases the economic power of cultural tourism, turning average Deltans into ambassadors for the region. At last year’s festival we were able to track 28foreign countries, 46 US states and 53 MS counties.
