TICKETS NOW AVAILABLE —
SOUTHERN MAKERS CELEBRATING 5 YEARS ON AUGUST 12+13, 2017
The Montgomery tracks lead us North to Birmingham for the next southern adventure.
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – Tickets are now on sale for the fifth annual Southern Makers, a two-day event happening August 12-13, 2017, under the viaduct at the historic Sloss Furnaces. Part of the five-year celebration, is to try a new venue, change things up a bit and keep our event fresh— without losing the quality and spirit at the heart of the event.
Just as our original venue, Montgomery’s historic Union Station, represents movement and architectural beauty, so too does the Viaduct at Sloss but in a different way. The raw space composed of structural concrete material for its own sake, represents movement and a space for the making process. This rings true to our reason for creating Southern Makers back in 2013—bringing together handpicked top talent to explore southern based creativity that enriches lives – in one place for all to experience. We have the same values but we are relocating to a NEW historic environment. The Montgomery tracks are leading us North to Birmingham for a different southern adventure.
More than 100 of the South’s top makers, including nationally-renowned fashion designers, textile artists, screen printers, jewelers, brewers, winemakers, contemporary artists, farmers, woodworkers, chefs, bakers, architects, industrial designers, preservationists and entrepreneurs, will come together in Birmingham to celebrate Southern creativity and innovation. The complete list of Southern Makers will be posted to www.southernmakers.com mid-July, 2017.
