New York Mississippi Picnic Brings Southern Hospitality To Central Park


 

New York City, N.Y. - On June 5, 2010, thousands of Mississippians will gather in New York for the 31st Annual New York Mississippi Picnic in the Central Park East Meadow (97th Street and 5th Avenue) from noon – 6 p.m. This annual event will bring together some of the best of what Mississippi has to offer, including outstanding music, inspiring art, delicious food and, of course, a healthy dose of southern hospitality.

 

Tons of southern fried catfish and hushpuppies will be provided by Simmons Farm Raised Catfish of Yazoo City, and McAlister’s Deli will be serving desserts and its famous sweet tea to wash it all down.

 

Additionally, live entertainment will be provided by Jon Paris and the Christ United Methodist Church Youth Choir from Jackson, Miss. Many talented Mississippi artists will also be on hand to showcase and sell their artwork, as will talented authors from the Magnolia State who will be signing copies of their works. Karen Jamison, a well-known Mississippi artist, designed this year’s commemorative poster and will be on hand to sign the limited-edition prints of her artwork.

 

The New York Mississippi Picnic was started in 1979 when a small handful of native Mississippians living in New York City worked together to create an event that would highlight their state in a positive way. The results were the annual picnic that brings thousands of Mississippians together every year in

New York’s Central Park and the creation of the New York Society for the Preservation of Mississippi Heritage.

 

For more information on this year’s event, please contact Rachel McPherson at 718.788.2988 or visit www.nymspicnic.com.
