Cathead Jam Takes a Year Off for Distillery Expansions
JACKSON, Miss. – Cathead Distillery announced today its plans to postpone Cathead Jam, a two-day annual celebration of music and culture hosted at the distillery in downtown Jackson. Originally scheduled for Friday, May 29, and Saturday, May 30, the team ultimately made the decision to take the year off, as the distillery will be undergoing some exciting expansions and ongoing construction during that time.
The Distillery, which is celebrating 10 years in business this year, is excited to continue the brand’s growth with the commissioning of two new stills this spring/summer. An important step for the distillery’s progress to increase production and make way for new products, the project is projected to take months to complete, with ongoing construction needs throughout.
“We always want to deliver the best possible experience for all the fans and guests who attend the Jam every year,” says Cathead Distillery Co-Founder Richard Patrick. “We’re excited to use this year to focus on progress and bring the event back in 2021.”
Utilizing the year ahead to focus on progress, the team will continue to work on establishing Cathead Jam as an official 501c3 non-profit and securing exciting artists and food vendors for next year’s festival.
