Back after a three-year hiatus, Heritage Farms Days will showcase the farming culture of South Mississippi this weekend.

Another draw this year will be the musical guests for both nights.

“What better way to wind up each day of the Heritage Farm Live Festival than with home-grown Mississippi artists, taking their globally-recognized musical talents to center stage in Wiggins Mississippi,” says Toni Miles, publicity and entertainment director for the Heritage Farm Live Festival. “These concerts are free for everyone and a new addition to this annual Stone County festival, and we are happy to provide world-class entertainment free-of-charge, celebrating the Magnolia State’s popular singers and performers who made time in their busy schedules to ‘bring it back home.’”

Performing on Friday is the Miles Flatt Band.

“The Miles Flatt Band is based in Jackson, Mississippi, and as always, promises to put on a high energy show that will have concert-goers on their feet, if they choose, to dance and sway to the music for hours,” Miles said.

The Miles Flatt concert is scheduled for 5:30 to 7:30 pm at the Stone County Fairgrounds Exhibit Hall, and will take to the stage just 30 minutes after day one of the festival wraps on Friday, November 4, giving festival-goers and others time to find seating for the concert.

Hannah Belle is the headliner for day two of the festival and will take center stage at the Stone County Fairgrounds Exhibit Hall on Saturday, November 5 from 7 to 9 pm. Hannah Belle opened for Shenandoah and Little Texas recently, during a concert on October 22. She and the band are looking forward to entertaining the crowd at the concert in Wiggins.

“Hannah Belle is a Mississippi singer and songwriter whose star is on the rise, and we are lucky to have her and her band performing at the Heritage Farm Live Festival in Wiggins,” Miles said.

Hannah Belle has been named CMA’s emerging artist five times, and was nominated in 2017 for Songwriter of the Year for Nashville Universe.

“Hannah Belle is happy to be part of the festival, getting back to her “roots,” and is looking forward to putting on yet another world-class show in Wiggins,” Miles said.

Both concerts are free, but seating is limited and on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Organized by Dick O’Neal and numerous voluteers and sponsors, the celebration will take place at the Stone County Fairgrounds this Friday and Saturday.

Students and adults can experience ancient culture while watch Native American dancers perforrm.

The dancers travel to Stone County from Philidelphia, Mississippi to perform their show.

Other exhibits will include demonstrations on syrup-making, crafts, and other activities like sack races and the main event: the mule pull competition.
