CHARLESTON, SC (PRESS RELEASE) – Garden and Gun magazine hosts the Made in the South Weekend coming up on November 9th and 10th. The weekend salutes Southern craftmanship and regocnizes the winners of G&G’s ninth annual Made in the South Awards spanning six categories: food, drink, home, style, crafts and outdoors.
“Our team could not be more excited to celebrate the winners of our ninth annual awards with our readers this November,” says David DiBenedetto, senior vice president and editor in chief of Garden & Gun. “The weekend gives us the opportunity to bring them together, and to applaud the remarkable talent and creativity of artisans, craftsmen, chefs, designers, and tastemakers from across the South. And in true G&G fashion, you can be sure it’ll be a good time with plenty of food, drink, and music.”
The weekend kicks off on Friday, November 9, with a musical performance by Nashville artists Amanda Shires and Aaron Lee Tasjan, and continues Saturday, November 10, when ticket holders gain access to the G&G headquarters at the Cigar Factory. The space hosts a series of Meet the Maker Conversations with G&G editors, MITSA judges, and artisans, along with a Made in the South Marketplace featuring a first look at award-winning products from category finalists and a curated retail experience from Fieldshop by Garden & Gun. The weekend concludes with a celebratory dinner at Charleston’s historic Aiken-Rhett House featuring a globally inspired meal prepared by acclaimed chef Asha Gomez and cocktails created by mixologist Miles Macquarrie—both participating judges this year in the annual awards.
