MS Delta Tennessee Williams Festival
The 29th Annual Mississippi Delta Tennessee Williams Festival is excited to announce our dates for the 2021 Festival and send an update on plans for navigating this fall.
The annual festival will be held October 14th-16th, 2021 with both a socially distanced in-person outdoor festival on the grounds of the Cutrer Mansion, along with a fully produced professional online stream in hopes of both accommodating as many needs as we can during this uncertain time and to do so as safely as possible.
All festival performances, programming and workshops will be available in our outdoor, ADA compliant event area while also being available on our streaming platforms. Whether this is your first time in Clarksdale, first time coming back in a while, or you are still hoping to visit in the future we want to make sure you have lots of options as you plan for this upcoming fall visit.
The festival will feature the theme of the stories of the people, music and history along the Mississippi River, from the Delta all the way to New Orleans, using Williams’ A Streetcar Named Desire as our jumping off point for this year’s discussion, performances and presentations.
More information on schedule, presenters and artists and the annual High School Drama Competition will be announced later this summer.
Those who are interested in participating in the on-line festival are encouraged to visit the website https://deltawilliamsfestival.com so they can sign up for news and updates through our mailing list.
The festival is sponsored by Coahoma Community College with support from the Mississippi Arts Commission, the Mississippi Humanities Council, the Coahoma County Tourism Commission and donors like you.
