2015 Delta Jubilee
Experience the Delta Mystique
The Mississippi Delta is a land of mystery and magic where adversity is turned to elation, where trial is transformed to triumph. It is a place where openness and hospitality transcend all barriers and visitors are embraced as family.
The Delta is a place of lush farmlands that stretch in solitude to the horizon, and bustling small towns, like Clarksdale, where shopping is and art form and dining is a ritual. Many excellent restaurants offer everything from tasty regional cuisine to international fare, including Italian, Lebanese, Chinese, Mexican American, and French, served in the most casual of atmospheres surrounded by elegance. Lodging ranges from historic hotels and bed and breakfast inns to family friendly accommodations or luxury hotel suites.
Take a Look Around!
World Capital of the Blues
Almost every day you will find people from around the world walking the streets of the "Birthplace of the Blues," searching out the roots of America's most original music and discovering its renown "Crossroads."
From front porches of rustic shacks to street corners and juke joints, authentic blues music is still alive in local venues and annual festivals. Visitors make their mecca to Clarksdale's Historic Blues District - "Blues Alley" - which hosts the Delta Blues Museum in the old freight depot of the Illinois Central where Muddy Waters stepped aboard the train to make his mark of fame in Chicago.
