This page contains a calendar of all 2018 Mississippi public holidays. Please scroll down to view.

If you are looking for a perfect time to get out and explore the Magnolia State, try the long weekends created by Mississippi’s public holidays in 2018.

In 2018, there will be eight long weekends in Mississippi, including “Thanksgiving Friday” on November 23rd and Confederate Memorial Day on April 26th, a holiday celebrated (unsurprisingly) only in the South.

Things to see and do in Mississippi in 2018

Places of interest to visit for your 2018 Mississippi public holidays including the following:

Jackson, the capital and largest city, where you will find a host of attractions. Look for “living history” at the Mississippi Agriculture and Forestry Museum, the the Old Mississippi State Capitol, and the inner-city nature haven called “LeFleur’s Bluff State Park.”

Natchez, the “Antebellum Capital of the World,” which offers a look at Dunleith and many other old plantation-era mansions. Also see old Indian burial grounds at the Grand Village of the Natchez and the remains of Fort Rosalie and more in Natchez National Historical Park.

Percy Quinn State Park, where you can hike, fish, picnic, and fish or boat on the waters of Lake Tangipahoa. Also see the McComb City Railroad Depot Museum and have fun at the nearby Bogue Chitto Water Park.
