The 31st Annual RiverFest Music and Arts Festival will be held in downtown Vicksburg April 20-21, 2018. This year’s festival theme is “RevAMPed” and is sure to bring back
some old favorites while mixing in new activities. This year’s board has slated 22 acts to perform over the weekend for the nighttime concerts including the Original Lakeside, Miki Howard, Tucka, Shirley Jones of the Jones Girls, Uncle Kracker and Vicksburg’s own William Michael Morgan. Tickets are $20 for each night or $35 for a weekend pass. VIP Tickets are also available for $100. Tickets may be purchased online at www.riverfestms.com or at Paper Plus, LD’s Kitchen, Michel’s Records or Zsa Zsa’s.
In addition to the large musical selection at this year’s event, daytime activities include a barbecue cookoff, adult softball tournament, the arts and crafts show, and Kid’s Land. Visitors can enjoy Burt Fleming Wood B Creations, Ricky Nobile Caricature Artist, Frank the Camel, the Mechanical Bull, Freedom Ranch Animal Show, David G.
