The day is nearly here for the Greater Belhaven Neighborhoods’ favorite summer tradition – the Bright Lights Belhaven Nights street and music festival! Join us August 12th from 4:30 to 9:30 PM in Greater Belhaven!
Thousands flock to the festival each year seeking out the unique aura of one of Jackson’s most historic neighborhoods and the incredible experience of this award-winning festival, named a top 20 event in the Southeast by the Southeast Tourism Society.
Presented by the Greater Belhaven Foundation, Baptist Medical Clinic Fastpass, C Spire, The Manship Wood Fired Kitchen, Medical Practice Solutions, Mississippi Sports Medicine, and Southern Beverage Company, the annual festival showcases and celebrates the unique culture of the Greater Belhaven Neighborhoods.
At the 13th Annual BLBN festival, you’ll stroll along the streets of this incredible historic neighborhood enveloped in an atmosphere unlike any other, as live Blues, Jazz, Indie Rock and Acoustical music streams from 3 stages and the smells of delicious foods from local restaurants and vendors drifts through the air.
Artists, craftsmen, and makers of all kinds will offer up their works. Children will bounce, play and create in the children’s activity area. Adults will savor the creations of some of the best craft breweries in the state and bid on signature festival artwork at the silent auction and a free raffle of items from area merchants.
Don’t miss this favorite family-friendly event, right in the heart of Jackson’s most incredible neighborhoods!
