Fall adventures in Vicksburg, Mississippi

Saturday, 12 Oct, 2023 0

Porchfest and pecan pie — just two of the many reasons why travelers need to add Vicksburg, Mississippi to their fall travel itinerary.

This charming, little known southern town comes to life with fall festivals, candlelight ghost tours, and seasonal menu offerings.

Discover the spooky charm of Vicksburg this October with Halloween-themed events, including special candlelight and ghost tours at the McRaven House, the most haunted house in Mississippi. Dating back to pre-Civil War, this historic home was built in three different periods and has a spine-chilling past.

Candlelight Tours are offered on Fridays and Saturdays from October 20 – 28, from 7 pm. Here visitors will be guided by candlelight through the home, stopping in each room to meet a character of McRaven’s past to learn their story. Tickets are available for $25 per person.

Cokes and Floats

Autumn leaves aren’t the only crisp thing in Vicksburg during the fall. Visitors should head to the historic downtown to enjoy a crisp, ice cold soda and see where Coca-Cola was first bottled. The Biedenharn Coca-Cola Museum was first constructed in 1890 and initially used by the Biedenharn family as a wholesale candy company and a shoe store.

Joseph Biedenharn was approached by Asa Griggs Candler, the co-founder of The Coca-Cola Company, on a business trip and suggested that Biedenharn’s Candy Company stock the iconic drink to supply the fountain dispensing trade around Vicksburg.

From there, Joseph Biedenharn had the idea to bottle America’s favorite carbonated drink, marking it the first official bottling of Coca-Cola in 1894. On March 12, 2024, Vicksburg will celebrate the 130th anniversary of the first bottling of Coca-Cola.

Get outside and explore the fall foliage on the Mighty Mississippi! Catch blue catfish on a U.S Coast Guard-licensed charter with Blue Cat Guide Services or go on a guided canoe adventure with Quapaw Canoe Company.

Immerse in the Vicksburg community. The city is home to a number of fall focused events, including Porchfest and the Vicksburg Vintage Motorcycle Show. Porchfest weaves the community of Vicksburg together through food, music, and family-friendly activities. On October 28, in the Historic Fostoria neighborhood, visitors and locals alike can listen to live grassroots music on the front porches of historic homes and wander down Drummond Street for bites and fun activities. Motorcycle enthusiasts are invited to downtown Vicksburg for the Vintage Motorcycle Show on November 4 to view the collection of old bikes produced before 1990.


Seasonal Southern Comfort Cuisine

Feast on the flavors of Vicksburg this fall with the pecan praline pie and fried chicken at Walnut Hills Restaurant or Betty’s legendary biscuits at Main Street Market Cafe.

Visitors can sample what the city has to offer at the Taste of Vicksburg on October 27. From soulful performances by local entertainers to engaging insights from history buffs, dine on the city’s rich history and culture at the Vicksburg Convention Center. Tickets are $15 per person and are available for purchase at the Vicksburg Convention Center Box Office.
