In addition to the Mississippi Makers Fest, the Two Mississippi Museums will be unveiling a new exhibit called The World of Marty Stuart.
Attendees can see hundreds of never-before-seen items that Stuart has collected from musicians like Hank Williams, Dolly Parton, Johnny Cash, and more.
Other showcased items include guitars from Merle Haggard and Pops Staples, costumes from Port Wagoner, and some of Stuart’s own personal items.
“We are thrilled to host The World of Marty Stuart exhibit and can’t think of a better way to kick it off than with the Mississippi Makers Fest,” Pamela Junior, director of the Two Mississippi Museums, said. “Marty represents what it means to be a creative and hardworking Mississippian, and that’s what this festival will celebrate. We have a phenomenal musical lineup and several incredible food and art vendors from across the state.”
Stuart announced the opening of his exhibit on Facebook last month, detailing his excitement for the weekend.
