Top Annual Events

In Coastal Mississippi, the good times roll, and roll, and roll. With twelve coastal communities in our tri-county region, our collective calendar boasts events all year long. And because we love a reason to celebrate, we have several annual events that bring droves of visitors to our 62 miles of scenic coastline.

With food as a cornerstone of our culture, there are several annual events spotlighting the seafood industry in Coastal Mississippi. The Crawfish Music Festival at the Mississippi Coast Coliseum never disappoints with headline entertainment, exciting mid-way rides, and of course, hot-boiled crawfish, and the Annual Biloxi Seafood Festival on the Biloxi Town Green features a gumbo cook-off and several activities for families to enjoy. Moreover, if you can catch it, we’ll weigh it. The tri-county region plays host to the annual King Master and Mississippi Gulf Coast Billfish Classic tournaments, bringing in competitive fishing teams from across the country.

Cars are a thing in Coastal Mississippi. We celebrate each make and model and have three different annual events to prove it: Jeepin’ the Coast, Scrapin’ the Coast, and Cruisin’ the Coast. Voted #1 by USA Today as the Best Car Show Competition, Cruisin’ the Coast brings car enthusiasts from over 40 states, as well as international visitors to celebrate antique, classic, and hot rod vehicles.
