The annual Back Stage Pass event will be this January 26th and 27th in historic downtown Vicksburg. Back Stage Pass 2017 is a festival and event coordinators' conference presented by the Mississippi Main Street Association, Visit Mississippi and the Mississippi Arts Commission. Back Stage Pass is meant to prepare and teach event coordinators how to plan and coordinate memorable events in their Mississippi towns.
Back Stage Pass focuses on teaching attendees how to plan festivals and special events centered on the characteristics of their town and community. The speakers and attendees will share ideas and experiences with each other to learn and discuss ways to develop events that will enhance their community’s economy and their residents’ way of life.
This event targets festival and event planners, non-profit organizations, fundraisers, Main Street directors, universities and colleges, tourism organizations, Chamber of Commerce members, and anyone else interested in coordinating events in their town.
Along with the Back Stage Pass event, the Back Stage Pass presenters will also be kicking off Mississippi's Bicentennial Year in Vicksburg. This year’s tagline is, "Nod to the Past and a Vision for the Future."
Online registration is $100 through Jan. 13th and $150 on site at the Vicksburg Convention Center starting at 9 a.m. on Jan. 26th.
