Home / Culture / Jackson Rhythm & Blues Festival



If you’ve ever attended the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival or Beale Street Music Festival in Memphis, then you’ve probably discovered the biggest problem with both: They are more than two hours away.

The Jackson Rhythm and Blues Festival, which won a second title as the city’s Best Music Festival, solves that problem in style. Held every year in the many buildings located on the Mississippi Agriculture and Forestry Museum grounds, the massive music festival ensures that any place you are, there will be a party happening with great music from a variety of genres. 2015 saw the likes of Chaka Khan and The Isley Brothers mixing it up with regional favorites such as Bobby Rush and Scott Albert Johnson. —Tommy Burton
