The Joyful Vampire Tour of America is coming to downtown Vicksburg bringing capes, cocktails, and a film...(plus a docu-series)

What is the JVTA?

The filmmakers of Bite Me are renting an RV and taking Bite Me on the road - a 3-month Joyful Vampire Tour of America from May 8 - July 31, spreading the wild, raucous joy of this film and its characters.

Join writer, producer and actress Naomi McDougall Jones and friends for a special screening of Bite Me - a subversive romantic comedy about a real-life vampire and the IRS agent who audits her. Bite Me is a unique, while universally relatable story about outsiders fighting to be seen.

(Christian Coulson as James)

After the screening at the Strand there will be a Q&A followed by a Joyful Vampire Ball.


A Joyful Vampire Ball is a chance to meet the filmmakers and team behind Bite Me, celebrate, laugh, and chat with your fellow audience members, but, most importantly, Joyful Vampire Balls are a chance for each and every person to celebrate whatever makes them feel most joyful.

Everyone is invited to wear a special outfit to their screening/vampire ball - it can be a vampire costume, of course, but it could also be a tiara, wings, a Viking dress, a Christmas sweater - really anything that makes you feel fabulous and joyful. That thing that you love but have thought, "but when the heck am I ever going to wear this?" Wear that. Now.

Part-party, part-event, part celebration, each Vampire Ball is a space where everyone is welcome, nobody is judged, and every uniqueness, large and small, is given room to be expressed. Come wearing whatever you like and get ready for the most joyful night you'll have all month!
