Due to safety concerns chairs will not be allowed on the grounds. Attendees are encouraged to move between the indoor venues and enjoy the wonderful talent gracing our 4 air conditioned stages – with chairs – for resting your bones; until moving to catch another great artist in the next spot. Who needs a seat with so much boomin’ music, jumpin’ from stage to stage, you don’t want to miss a beat!.  Food and drink vendors keep festival attendees happy and well fed with an abundance of Southern cuisine including Mississippi farm raised catfish, succulent barbeque ribs and chicken on a stick, along with signature festival alcoholic drinks, wine and beer.  Make plans to attend the 2015 Jackson Rhythm & Blues Festival and get a taste of the “City with Soul” during two unforgettable days of rhythm and blues that’s sure to set your soul on fire!
