The event will also feature live musical acts, including Woods and The Living Kills, and world-famous mural artist Laurel True creating an interactive meat mural with the crowd.

Fans of woodworking and artisan craftmanship will enjoy an interactive experience sponsored by event partner George Dickel Tennessee Whisky called “Raising the Bar.” The experience will feature renowned designer and artist Jimmy Diresta, who will build an entire bar during the event. Attendees can watch the piece take shape, ask questions and chat with Diresta as he hand crafts the bar – a process inspired by George Dickel Tennessee Whisky which is handmade the hard way with an actual human being touching every step of the distillery process.
