From the team at Jed Morris Realty, we’d like to wish you a happy new year. Whether you’re resolving to exercise more, drink more water, or put some money into savings, we’ve got an easy suggestion for another new year’s goal: get involved with your community!
As the year kicks off, there are tons of events happening around the Northeast Mississippi area. From local art and music to celebrating the King himself, take a look at a few of the highlights happening in January.
Yoga for a Cause
Combine a few resolutions into one with Yoga for a Cause in Oxford. Not only can you get your blood pumping and get involved with your community, but you can also help give back to a good cause. While the yoga classes themselves are totally free, all of the donations from the event benefit local charities.
Kicking off on January 6th, the profits from this month’s classes will go towards My Ole Miss Wish, an initiative that grants wishes to kids growing up in military families. Perfect your warrior pose and get out in the community with Yoga for a Cause!
Elvis’ 84th Birthday Celebration
Celebrating the King of Rock and Roll’s birthday at his birthplace in Tupelo, this year marks the 84th birthday of Elvis Presley. The Presley family called Tupelo home until Elvis’ 13th birthday, when the clan packed up and moved to Memphis, but many of Elvis’ musical inspirations come from the Tupelo community.
On January 8th of every year, the Elvis Birthplace Museum makes a celebration out of his birthday. Enjoy birthday cake, coffee, and other treats as the community celebrates the life of this local legend.
Blue Öyster Cult Concert
The Blue Oyster Cult is one of the most prolific and well-known bands in American music history. Pioneers of the hard rock and heavy metal scenes, the BOC will be making the rounds in Tupelo on January 8th as part of their latest touring series.
Come out and hear BOC play classics like “(Don’t Fear) The Reaper,” “Godzilla,” and “Burnin’ For You,” and grab your tickets for what’s sure to be the best concert of the month in Northeast Mississippi.
Ninth Annual Oxford Fiber Arts Festival
When the University Museum and Yoknapatawpha Arts Council first started the Fiber Arts Festival, their goal was simply to create exhibits that would reach the community outside of the museum. The initiative eventually turned into a full-blown festival, and now features art from local fiber artists, a fiber market, a workshop, and more.
The festival now stretches over several days — from January 24th to 27th — and attracts visitors from all across Mississippi and nearby states! Get involved with the community and support local art at this year’s Fiber Arts Festival in Oxford.
