Happy Birthday Natchez, Mississippi

One of the oldest cities in America, in 2016 Natchez will celebrate its Tricentennial Anniversary, recognizing 300 years of heritage shaped by people of African, French, British and Spanish descent. The anniversary will be celebrated throughout the year with a wide range of events, major conferences, special “birthday” events, unique festivals, historical reenactments, musical tributes and more.

In addition to holding the title of “Bed and Breakfast Capital of the South,” Natchez is a pedestrian-friendly cultural hub home to more than 40 authentic antebellum homes and Victorian buildings, art galleries, live music, authentic southern cuisine (it’s the “Biscuit Capital of the World!”) and a full calendar of events and festivals.
