God showed out this year with another beautiful day and great turnout.  We had a wonderful turnout on April 29th (pageant) & 30th (car show and color run) for the 11th Annual Star Spring Festival.   We do want to thank each sponsor, participant, and volunteer for the successful year.   We raised $13,752 this year making the totals over $118,000 for the 11 years and it would not have happened without your support.   We are already started planning for next year (April 29, 2023) so please send me an email with what you did and didn’t like for this years event so we can make it even better next year.  We also would like to thank the Star Volunteer Fire Dept and the Rankin County Sheriffs Dept for keeping us safe.  

I plan on starting to post pictures so check back soon….


Star Spring Festival is an annual event that raises money for St. Jude Children’s Hospital in Star, MS the last weekend of April. This year on April 30th we are having a Car, Truck, & Bike Show and a 5k color run with registration starting at 7:00am and the run/car show starting at 9:00. (See the registration tab if you would like to register early). At these events we will also have vendor/craft booths, 50/50 drawing, silent auction, door prizes, food, and a “legal burnout” after the car show. DJ “Bender” from Y101 will be playing the tunes. You can also go to the registration tab to get more information about these events.

The evening before the main event we are having a “St Jude’s Shining Star” Pageant at Star Baptist Church CLC. The registration is $25 and the last day to turn in the money and forms is April 22nd.  You can go to the registration tab to donate online and/or register early.  NO entries will be taken at the door. Sunday Best Dress Attire Only….

We have at least 5 families from Hinds, Rankin, and Simpson County that will be at this event that go to St. Jude Children’s Hospital.  Come show them and the other families your support.

Since it is so close to time for the event please DO NOT mail any registration forms or sponsorship money.   Please let us meet you to pick them up or drop them off at Star Baptist Church.  

APRIL 29/30th is right around the corner.   I hope you are as excited about this year as we are.

Over the last 10 years we have raised $104,657.93 for St. Jude Children’s Hospital with the help of people like you so THANK YOU!
