The inaugural Mississippi Food and Wine will be held June 13-15, 2019.
The 2019 Mississippi Craft Beer Festival, entering its fifth year, will become the Friday
anchor event along with four private dinner events on Thursday and Friday. Friday
evening’s Craft Beer Festival will be hosted within a tented area on Fondren’s Duling
Avenue while the four private dinners will be hosted at The Cedars, Lou’s Full Serve,
Brent’s and Albert’s at Parlor Market.
Saturday evening will be our “Grand Tasting” featuring highlighted chefs and
establishments from the previous nights’ private dinners as well as added chefs
throughout the Southern restaurant community. This event will be held in the tented
area on Duling Avenue.
Founded to promote and emphasize Fondren’s eclectic and award-winning culinary
community, the three-day event, presented by Fondren Renaissance Foundation, will
be a major fundraiser for the organization benefiting its programming and efforts in and
around the Fondren area as well as throughout the city of Jackson. A portion of the
funds raised throughout the event will be given to food-centered charities of interest
nominated by our leadership committee.
