Back Stage Pass is presented by the Mississippi Main Street Association, Mississippi Arts Commission and Visit Mississippi. The three statewide organizations are partnering for the fifth year to present a high quality festival and event coordinators’ program. Each year, Back Stage Pass produces a new program with original sessions and speakers and the most current knowledge and information to help you build and grow successful festivals and events.
Back Stage Pass focuses on planning for festivals and special events that reveal your town’s authentic character through the sharing of ideas and like experiences with other event planners throughout the Southeast. We invite you to join us for fun, camaraderie and learning as we explore ways to develop and enhance events that build community character and contribute to the creative economy and community members’ quality of life.
