Frets for Pets 2022 taking place at the Juke Joint in Ocean Springs

The Juke Joint in Ocean Springs is back with its annual Frets for Pets Music Festival this weekend.

The three-day event began today with live music ranging in a variety of genres for the guests. Thirty acts from Louisiana to Florida were invited to perform during the festival.

Outside of music, the event features a variety of arts and craft vendors, drinks, and a dunk tank.

The goal of the festival is to raise funds for animal shelters across the Coast struggling to keep up with increasing animal drop-offs.

The event runs from 2 p.m. to 11 p.m. each day. Frets for Pets President Dimitri Curtis said, “It’s awesome. I love it. Ocean Springs is awesome. All the bands are awesome. The fact that they are putting in all this time to do this for us is awesome. I can’t express the gratitude for helping the community and the animals out so much.”

Tickets cost $20 for each day or $45 for a three-day pass.
