King Biscuit Blues Festival has attracted hundreds of thousands of people from all over the world to the banks of the Mississippi River in Helena, Arkansas. Featuring recognized blues legends as well as up-and-coming acts, this iconic festival, held the weekend before Columbus Day each October, continues to preserve and promote the music of the Delta. Taking its name from “King Biscuit Time,” the longest-running radio show in history, the festival brings people together who appreciate being in the cradle of blues culture.
