In 2015, Quitman County hosted its first annual Mules and Blues Fest. Centered on the “Mule Train”  and Martin Luther King, Jr.’s Poor People’s Campaign, this event links the established Mississippi Blues Trail and the Mississippi Freedom Trail.

The Marks’ Mules and Blues Fest is a tremendous opportunity for this region to showcase their historical treasures, artistic talents through music, art, literature, and southern-style culinary skills.
