Volunteers & Sponsors
We would like to express our heartfelt thanks
to all those who volunteered and participated in planning
the 1st Annual Quitman County Mules & Blues Fest.
A Special Note of Thanksgiving
The committee members of the 1st Annual Quitman County Mules & Blues Fest want to personally thank the Quitman County Board of Supervisors, the City of Marks, and all the municipalities of Quitman County for coming together to bring this festival to this region.
We would like to thank each sponsor, patron, volunteer, entertainer, vendor, and the general public for their support and participation.
This is a people's festival. A celebration of our community's history with emphasis on the present and a window into our promising future. We look forward to the new Amtrak station in 2016, the implementation of National Endowment of the Arts/Our Town planning grant, the restoration of the Rosenwald School, and other business ventures and tourism opportunities that await Quitman County.
Corporate and community donations are needed to sustain the Quitman County Mules & Blues Fest. Donations are tax deductible and can be mailed to:
