Vicksburg Second Saturday
Every month, Vicksburg showcases the many artistic talents of its residents during its Second Saturday event. There are many forms of art on display, including crafts, dancing, food, and of course, music. There are stages downtown where featured performers are scheduled to play. You can also walk around downtown to find musicians playing. Bands are allowed to perform anywhere on public property that is not already reserved with the agreement of the local merchant.
Vicksburg is home to a handful of casinos, some of which feature live entertainment throughout the week. The WaterView Casino & Hotel is home to a 7,000 square foot event venue with live music performances every weekend. From 8:00 to midnight on Friday and Saturday nights, enjoy concerts from top bands from across the country and up-and-coming stars. For a more intimate experience, head to the Ameristar Casino, where you can watch bands play some classic rock’n’roll at the Bottleneck Blues Bar. Similar to the WaterView, the music starts at 8:00 Friday and Saturday nights, with most of the performance being free for guests. Whenever the shows are finished, you can try your luck on the gaming floors of each casino, which are open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
