The Gateway to the Delta Festival, now in its seventh year of existence, has grown to be the largest annual event held in Charleston, MS. Each year, thousands of people from all over gather on the Charleston Court Square for this fun, family-friendly event. Our festival consistently hosts dozens of class reunions, family reunions, friend gatherings, and more. Talk about one big homecoming!
A full day of authentic Mississippi music is just the start of what our festival offers. Arts & Crafts vendors from across the southeast offer unique items for shoppers. There’s also plenty of delicious food to choose from with the variety of southern-style food vendors. Various contests are held during the festival, such as a BBQ cook-off, Photography Contest, a 5k walk/run, Car Show, and more. There is something for everyone at our festival!
Of course, we can’t forget about the kids! Our Kids’ Zone consists of various activities for children, including inflatables, games, and more. Talk about fun for the whole family!
Each year, we strive to make the Gateway to the Delta Festival an event that is enjoyable to all.
