History of BayFest


Bay Fest was begun in 1991 by Mayor J. E. Smith as a celebration at the end of the Desert Storm conflict to recognize local citizens and other Mississippians serving in the armed forces.
The first festival was a success and
now in its twenty sixth year, the
event has matured into a first-class, four-day festival for the purpose of sharing and showcasing our community to tourists, businesses and industry and building self-esteem and pride among local citizens.
