Bulldog Bash™ is the largest free outdoor concert event in the State of Mississippi. The event is held in mid-September in the Historic Cotton District in Starkville, Mississippi that features an MSU Football DawgRally, FanFare and live music on several stages. The festival draws around 35,000 visitors and is held on a Friday night before an SEC MSU home football game. Past performers include Third Eye Blind, Gavin Degraw, Matt Wertz, Sister Hazel, Big Daddy Weave, Edwin McCain, Eric Church, Bobby Valentino, and many more.
Bulldog Bash™ is not only made up of one single concert, it has at least six different bands each year. The festival also features our Vendor Area, comprised of various companies, organizations, and restaurants who fill the Cotton District with shoppers and great smells of fresh cooked food. This year, the DawgRally moves down from the Junction to the Cotton District for fans to support their Dawgs before the Saturday game against the University of Georgia. Following the DawgRally, our annual FanFare takes place, which is made up of multiple inflatables and family fun activities. Bulldog Bash™ is truly a night for family and friends.
