Pilgrimage isn’t just for the tourists

It’s that time of year again, fall is in the air. With it comes cooler air, beautiful and ever-changing foliage, pumpkin patches and the much anticipated Fall Pilgrimage.

Natchez Pilgrimage Tours would like to invite everyone to join in the festivities and remind the community that Pilgrimage is not just a tourist event. Events and entertainment during Fall Pilgrimage will appeal to all. And what better way to support your community and revive the pride that comes with living in such a beautifully historic town, than by touring a few homes that you may unintentionally take for granted on a daily basis.

This year, Fall Pilgrimage will run until Oct. 14. It started Thursday. There are 15 homes open for touring on a three-day rotating schedule as well as three mansion houses.

There will also be rotating evening entertainment which includes Amos Polk’s Voices of Hope, “Sordid Lives” by Natchez Little Theatre and the Soiree Musical at the J.N. Stone House.

Amos Polk’s Voices of Hope is a plantation dinner with stirring Gospel Music by the internationally famous Amos Polk Choir. The world-famous Carriage House Restaurant is the setting for this excellent show. Dinner begins at 6:45 p.m., music at 7:30, every Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday during Fall Pilgrimage.

“Sordid Lives” is an uproarious and bawdy comedy presented at the Natchez Little Theatre Playhouse. Parents, please be aware that while you should not miss “Sordid Lives,” it is an adult comedy with adult language and situations. So call your favorite babysitter and get your tickets! There will be a performance every Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday nights at 7:30 p.m., along with one matinee at 2 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 14.

Finally, relive a 19th century musicale with renowned classical pianist Joseph Stone at the J.N. Stone House. Stone keeps his family’s antebellum music room alive with intimate concerts and wine receptions. You may also hear stories of colorful relatives and family friends including Harper Lee and Truman Capote. Stone entertains every Friday and Saturday night at 6 p.m. during Fall Pilgrimage.

For a full listing of homes and schedules, please visit us at www.natchezpilgrimage.com.

Of course, we also invite you to come by and visit our knowledgeable staff at the Natchez Visitor Reception Center located at 640 S. Canal St.
