It’s no secret that Mississippi is known as a hub of arts, culture and creativity…and Ridgeland certainly lives up to that reputation. Fine art? Quirky sculpture? One-of-a-kind crafts? We’ve got it. Whether you’re strolling through an arts festival or getting lost in a museum exhibit, you’ll find the works of incredible artisans at your fingertips in Ridgeland. Immerse yourself in our vibrant culture and you’re sure to find yourself inspired.


While we don’t encourage judging a book by its cover, we might make one exception. With its modern facade nestled on the outskirts of the lush Natchez Trace Parkway forest, The Craft Center is a true jewel. But, beyond the beautiful glass staircase–yes, it has that, too–The Craft Center is home to the unique works of Southern creators, as well as classes taught by master Craftsmen.

Arts, Crafts and Cultural Events

Museum Monday with yourself, Taco Tuesday with friends, Walk on the Trace Wednesday with family…you get the picture. From arts festivals and food crawls to family-friendly outdoor activities and plenty of opportunities for culture, a full calendar in Ridgeland means fun for everyone, no matter your budget or interests.
