Back on the brick streets for the 6th year, the Annual Red Brick Roads Music and Arts Festival is scheduled for August 26 & 27 in Olde Towne Clinton. The steering committee is pleased to announce that Terrance Simien & The Zydeco Experience will be headlining on Saturday evening and Happy Landing will headline the Friday evening lineup.

Enjoy live music, great food, crafts, and art vendors, along with a wide selection of craft beer on the historic red brick streets of Olde Towne Clinton. Main Street Clinton, the Clinton Chamber of Commerce, and the City of Clinton are thrilled to bring this great event to the community for the sixth year. The festival is a celebration of Mississippi creatives, featuring Mississippi and Southern musicians, Southern cuisine, and the 4th Annual Red Brick Brew Homebrew Competition. With many local and regional craft beers on tap, Red Brick Roads will have a taste for everyone.

The fun starts on Friday night, August 26, with a songwriter round-robin at 7:00 p.m. Sam and Holly Mooney will be hosting the musician’s round-robin followed at 8:30 p.m. by headliner Happy Landing who will close out the evening. Gates open at 6:00 p.m. on Friday.

Head back to the brick streets on Saturday, August 27 at noon for the craft market and the Red Brick Brew Homebrew Competition at 3:30 p.m. Then plan to catch Dem Bones, Tatum Henry, Red & The Revelers, and The Brook & The Bluff, followed by headliner Terrance Simien & The Zydeco Experience. Gates open at noon on Saturday for the craft show, and music begins at 3:30 p.m.

Downtown businesses will be encouraged to keep their doors open for late-day, early evening shoppers. Attendees can also shop from Red Brick Roads craft vendors on Saturday. Plan to bring your lawn chair and a friend (but no cooler!) and enjoy a relaxed weekend on the brick streets.
