come and see us!

Author James C Cobb called the Delta "the most southern place on earth," and in the south, living well is something of an obsession. From its days as a bustling "anything goes" river town one hundred years ago through the present day, Helena and Phillips County promises a good time to visitors and residents alike. In the words of one visitor, "The people of Phillips County know how to throw a party!" Whether that party is a tea party in the finest southern tradition, a "boot scoot," a motorcycle festival, an all-out multi-day blues jam, or an arts & culture walk through historic street, we live as if "living well" - however you define it - is truly our obsession. And so, true to our southern roots and culture, we are delighted to invite you to join us in our revelry and savor the full flavor of the place we call home. A party is only as good as the people who come, and your invitation has been sent. The food is warm and the drinks are cold, so y'all come!
