Last year Southern Accents was thrilled to be an integral part of a cutting edge event that was a HUGE success! We are equally excited to return this year as one of the curators for Southern Makers 2014. This one day event, held at the Union Station train shed in downtown Montgomery, Alabama, is scheduled for May 03, 2014.
Southern Makers celebrates creativity and innovation in Alabama. The purpose of the event, which is held as a fundraiser for E.A.T. South, is to bring together highly curated, handpicked top talent – artists, chefs, breweries, craftsmen, and designers – to one central place, making it easy for adventurers to get a sampling of the very best Alabama has to offer.
Event goers will be able to explore the talents of various craftsmen through tastings, demonstrations, panel discussions, workshops, maker conversations, and a market. This year’s market will feature goods from Billy Reid, Natalie Chanin and more than 100 southern artisans and chefs!
All proceeds from ticket sales benefit E.A.T. South, a non-profit organization that encourages healthy lifestyles through education and sustainable food production in urban areas throughout the Southeast. You can learn more about E.A.T. South by visiting them online at www.eatsouth.org
Mark your calendars NOW and plan to be in Montgomery on May 3rd for this can’t miss event! Tickets will be available for sale around the middle of March. In the mean time, you can learn more about this fabulous event by visiting www.southernmakers.com. You can also learn more about the makers by following the Meet Your Makers postings on Facebook. Make sure that you are following Southern Accents on Facebook as well… we may be giving away a few tickets as the event date draws near!
