A Day in the Country 2022

Chapel of the Cross, 674 Mannsdale Road, Madison, MS 39110


A Day in the Country is an annual community festival held on the Chapel grounds the first Saturday in October. It draws more than 10,000 visitors annually with families enjoying food, music, artisans, crafts, tours of the Chapel, beer and wine tasting, the famous 63-Egg Cake, and children’s games and rides.


A Day in the Country was born in 1979 out of the necessity to restore the nineteenth century Chapel before it was forever lost to decay and vandalism. The Department of the Interior offered a $50,000 grant to assist in the restoration of the church which was listed on the National Historic Register. The congregation had to match the grant, so the festival was created. In recent years, proceeds have gone for various servant ministries as well as ongoing maintenance of the historic building.
