Columbus Spring Pilgrimage 2017

 

Mark your calendars for The 77th Annual Spring Pilgrimage in Columbus, Mississippi, March 30-April 8, 2017!

 

The Columbus Spring Pilgrimage has evolved from a tour of homes more than 76 years ago to today’s delightfully diverse and deeply satisfying 10-day celebration. Southern history, architecture, culture, food and fun – it’s all here.

 

Named a Southeast Tourism Society Top 20 Event for March 2017, and widely recognized as one of the best and most authentic home tours in the South, this annual event is widely recognized as one of the best and most authentic home tours in the South. In addition to the more than 650 National Register properties and three National Register Historic Districts, the Pilgrimage embraces and celebrates all of the town's history as it serves up a feast of irresistible cultural flavors. The antebellum mansions of Columbus are impeccably maintained and as resplendent as ever. Many home tours feature recreated activities of the 1800s, complete with period costumes, which add excitement and even more authenticity to this historic event. It’s an experience visitors will long remember!
