Silo Square to hold Blues for the Blue Festival

The folks at Silo Square are going to hold a big event in April set to support local law enforcement. 

The first Blues for the Blues Crawfish and Blues Festival will be held on April 29 at Silo Square and it will benefit the Southaven Police Department.  

Silo Square officials said Blues For the Blue will be filled with live music, drinks, good eats, and more. All proceeds from this event will benefit the Southaven Police Department’s Benevolence Foundation. Wristbands are available for purchase including all-you-can-eat crawfish and 4 drink tickets. Sponsorships are also available. 

The Southaven Police Department’s Benevolence Foundation is a not-for-profit organization that has been established to support first responders and their families who are in distress or harm’s way. The Foundation is governed by a Board of Directors made up of members of the Southaven Police Department’s Command staff. The Foundation serves any first responders in need in the State of Mississippi and surrounding areas. 

The Benevolence Foundation, the first of its kind in the State of Mississippi, is not only supporting officers in need, but is enabling the Southaven Police Department to be noticed as a leader throughout the State of Mississippi. 

Community support through events such as Blues for the Blue in turn directly supports, protects, and advances our community, businesses, and schools, making this an event to be considered as an investment in the future of Southaven for years to come. 

In addition to the blues and crawfish festival, there will also be a free event for the kids.

A Touch-A-Truck event will be April 29 from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. Bring the kids at for an afternoon of touching, climbing and exploring everything from police cars, to ambulances, firetrucks and more!
