This festival is the oldest continuously operating blues festival in the country.
Natchez, established in 1716, high on a magnificent bluff overlooking the Mighty Mississippi, has more than 600 examples of Antebellum Architecture. During our Pilgrimage seasons more privately owned historic homes open their doors than any other time of the year. Natchez is treasured worldwide as a living museum of southern history and a hallmark of hospitality.
