The Mississippi Department of Archives and History (MDAH) has announced the return of Mississippi Makers Fest to the Two Mississippi Museums for a second year.
After a successful first year, the festival is looking to repeat that success by bringing back the music and food on May 13, 2023.
“Our goal was to create an event that celebrated makers of all kinds in Mississippi, and this year’s festival did just that,” MDAH Director Katie Blount said, adding that she expects a bigger turnout in 2023.
Southern Beverage Company, which started in Jackson in 1939, was the sponsor of the first Mississippi Makers Fest. According to President and CEO Theo P. Costas, Southern Beverage Co., Inc. will continue its partnership with MDAH into 2023.
“It means a lot to be able to sponsor an event in Jackson that is dedicated to celebrating Mississippi’s creativity and innovation,” Costas said.
