The Southern Spirits & Folklore Festival is a celebration of Southern life, with a unique mix events and activities.

The festival will kick off with more than a dozen unique classes and seminars passing along some of the finer points of living in the South; such as cooking with iron skillets, curing ham, canning, whittling, etiquette, making incredible fried chicken, and even baking cornbread.

The evening will offer a unique twist on celebrating the rich history of spirts 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.

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.
