Join us in celebrating the historic and cultural importance of East Biloxi while connecting with local community organizations and learning about ongoing community redevelopment projects. With this first annual community festival we seek to build upon the principles of the Resilient East Biloxi program and provide a safe, supportive, and encouraging space for the community to express themselves and celebrate the steps we are taking towards a resilient future. This event will feature activities for all ages including:

  • Live music
