Biscuit Jam Brings Music, Food, & Art to Ivy City Aug 6
Mason Dixie Biscuit Company is turning two, and they are throwing a dog friendly music, arts, and food festival in Ivy City to celebrate. The event takes place Saturday, August 6th from 12 p.m. to 8 p.m. at 1900 Kendall Street. They've got a full line-up of seven local bands, including Johnny Grave and The Bumper Jacksons. Plenty of local food trucks will be on-site to keep you fed. Look for BBQ Bus, Red Hook Lobster, Arepa Zone, and more. Graffiti artists from One Love Massive's collective will create live graffiti art. In a pop-up Southern-inspired "camp site" you'll find cocktails by Southern Efficiency, Southern-style pastrami and Kool-Aid pickles, as well as dollar oyster shucking from Ivy City Smokehouse. Also keep an eye out for a full bar featuring cocktails made with spirits from local favorites One Eight Distilling and Jos. A. Magnus & Co. Distillery, as well as from Jim Beam (apple and white). Local culinary incubator Union Kitchen and a selection of its vendors will be on hand. The four-legged set can visit Petco's pop-up dog park. Proceeds from Biscuit Jam will benefit the DC Arts and Humanities Education Collaborative, which raises money for arts in DCPS. Tickets are $20 for general admission and two drink tickets, to $125 for the VIP package (unlimited drinks, front row stage access, and a gift bag full of goodies from many of the Biscuit Jam vendors, swag from Union Kitchen, free meals from Munchery, gifts from Jim Beam and much, much more).
