Spring and Fall Pilgrimage 2020
Every year, thousands of guests visit historic Natchez for Spring Pilgrimage and Fall Pilgrimage. Spring Pilgrimage is March 14 – April 12 and Fall Pilgrimage is September 27 – October 14.
Every year, we invite local vendors to join us at Rosalie as guests arrive on River Boats to tour Natchez and Rosalie Mansion.
The Great Mississippi Balloon Race
Since 1987 the Mississippi State Society Daughters of the American Revolution has partnered with the Historic Natchez Foundation to produce the Natchez Balloon Festival, the largest and most successful festival in Southwest Mississippi. The festival site is located on the parklike grounds of Rosalie in the heart of historic downtown Natchez. In addition to spectacular views of the Mississippi River, the festival includes hot-air balloon flights, an evening balloon glow, live music, fireworks, arts and crafts booths, and carnival rides. The Natchez Balloon Festival always takes place on the third weekend of October.
