The Southern Social Festival is a celebration of Southern life, bringing a morning of informative exciting cooking classes with top regional chefs and an evening of drinks and fun featuring the distilleries of the Tennessee Whiskey Guild.

The festival will kick off with unique hands-on classes and seminars passing along some of the finer points of living in the South; such as cooking with iron skillets, curing ham, making biscuits and cornbread, frying chicken, and even pit-roasting an entire hog. Morning session begins at 8:45am and concludes at 3:45pm. 

The evening will offer a unique twist on celebrating the rich history of spirits distillation in Tennessee. A decidedly NOT black-tie affair, we are partnering with the Tennessee Whiskey Guild to bring mixology contests, fine Southern foods, music, and samples from more than 25 distilleries. Evening session begins at 6pm and concludes at 11pm. 

Entertainment will be provided by none other than Matt Stillwell.

There will also be a vendor area with Southern wares for purchase and exploring, as well as many other surprises that are still in the works. 

Whether you’re looking for ways to enhance your lifestyle, have fun with the family, enjoy the fine wares from more than 25 distilleries, or simply enjoy amazing Southern foods, this is where you'll want to be. 

Proceeds benefit the L5 Foundation.
