Bulldog Bash

Bulldog Bash™ is a free event held each fall that features an MSU Football Dawg Rally, Fan-Fare and live music on several stages. The festival draws around 35,000 visitors and is held on a Friday night before one of the SEC MSU home football games.

The concert has been branded as “Mississippi’s Largest Free Outdoor Concert Event!” Past performers include DNCE, Jason Mraz, The Avett Brothers, Eli Young Band, The Black Crowes, Third Eye Blind, Jake Owen, Gavin Degraw, Matt Wertz, X Ambassadors, Justin Moore, Eric Church, Local Natives, and many more.

Bulldog Bash™ is not only made up of one single concert, it has at least several different bands each year. The festival also features our Maroon Market, comprised of various companies, organizations, and restaurants who fill the event with shoppers and great smells of fresh cooked food. 


This year, Bulldog Bash will take place in downtown Starkville on November 5th featuring our headliner Hardy!
