Each year, dozens of congregations, professionals, and individuals vie for the coveted title of the Best Red Beans & Rice in town, and people from all around the Jackson metro area turn out to sample the competitors’ beans, listen to the bands, and enjoy the festivities. This year’s event will be held on Saturday, October 29th at The Mississippi Museum of Art from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm. The celebration includes kid-friendly activities such as face painting, a Halloween costume competition, trick-or-treating at contestant booths, and more! And, for the adults, there will be craft vendors, a cash bar, the inaugural Red Bean Bag Toss Tournament, and art available for purchase created by friends of Stewpot. Hosting the event at the Museum of Art provides a rain-or-shine venue for the food, kid’s activities, music and all of the other fun and festivities.
This event is guaranteed to be a fun-filled day of bean eating, cold beverages, children’s activities, musical talent, and more. It also provides a great way for businesses, neighbors and congregations to enjoy an afternoon of fellowship while supporting a great cause. Check back soon for the 2022 musical line-up!
All proceeds from this event will be used to help support the ministries of Stewpot, your favorite Mississippi Homegrown Charity. The money raised helps to keep the doors open, lights on, and continue to provide for the basic needs of men, women, and children in our community.
