Blues and Greens Festival

A Mississippi Delta Experience

The Hank Burdine's Blues and Greens Festival is an annual event located in Clarksdale, Mississippi.

The festival was established support blues musicians by promoting the hospitality, food, history and the talents of all the people in the Mississippi Delta. 

BB&G is a family style festival with all local and authentic atmosphere.


The Shack Up Inn and Shackdale Motel are premier Delta destinations with a rustic atmosphere. In the cottonfield, we’ve set aside 32 sites for Vintage, Airstream, and Quirky Trailers. We also have tent camp sites available. Check out the festival MAP.

The Shack Up Inn

Part museum, part hotel, and part entertainment venue, the Shack Up Inn is the real deal. Originally part of the Hopson Cotton Plantation, this is one of the coolest places to stay while you immerse yourself in Blues Music history. And if you look closely, you’ll experience history being created right in front of you. To reserve an authentic sharecropper cabin or to rent one of their rooms, call The Shack Up Inn.

Shacksdale Motel

A collection of recreated sharecropper cabins, the Shacksdale Motel is a Delta luxury destination with names like Cotton Shack, Piedmont, Dog Trot, and Chicken Coop. Shacksdale is located across the road from The Shack Up Inn. To reserve your Shacksdale cabin, call The Shack Up Inn
