Booker Fest in Bay St. Louis postponed until December

A festival set to take place in early September has been moved to December as concerns over the delta variant continue.

100 Men Hall’s Booker Fest will now run from December 3rd to December 5th instead of the original dates of September 3rd through 5th.

The festival honors blues keyboardist James Carroll Booker, who was born in New Orleans and raised in Bay St. Louis.

Entertainment set to take the stage at this year’s Booker Fest includes the Joe Kwon Trio, St. Rose Gospel Choir, and DJ T Swan.
