BankPlus Red Beans & Rice Festival
Returns to Ridgeland, MS

On May 12th, 2018, BankPlus Red Beans & Rice Festival for Stewpot returns to Renaissance at Colony Park in Ridgeland, Mississippi! The event will include a red beans and rice cook-off with 15 to 20 teams, people’s choice judging to name Best Red Beans Recipe Champion, and fantastic live music throughout the day.

“The Red Beans & Rice Festival will help support the 17 ministries of Stewpot Community Services,” Rob Armor, Executive Vice-President and Chief Marketing and Business Development Officer of BankPlus, said. “For years, the Red Beans & Rice Celebration was a staple in Metro Jackson. Great food and great music combined to not only create one of the best events of the year, but also to serve as a major fundraiser for Stewpot. BankPlus is proud to play a role in bringing this event back and better than ever.”

Tickets will go on sale Friday, February 15 at 10 a.m., at www.redbeansandrice.org. Tickets will cost $10 advance and $15 at the gate. New this year, the event is offering a ‘family pack for 4’ for $25 advance. Children 10 and under receive free admission. Last year’s revival of this festival was exciting for Jackson and the festival organizers are thrilled for another fun day of great food and music benefitting Stewpot Community Services.
