For the past two decades an annual Ida B. Wells Birthday Festival has taken place on a weekend close to her July 16th birthday.  The Ida B. Wells-Barnett Museum has worked hard to create a weekend of music and dance performances, a tour, banquet and awards ceremony that involve children and adults alike. The Ida B. Wells Memorial Foundation provides support to help make these activities happen.

For more detailed information about programs and times, contact the Ida B. Wells-Barnett Museum at  or 662-252-3232 

Her hometown of Holly Springs, Mississippi welcomes all to join in the celebration of the woman who was born and raised there.
