George E. Ohr Art and Beer Festival
The Ohr O’Keefe Art Museum in Biloxi brought back their fall festival on Saturday with a few new add-ons for South Mississippians to enjoy.
The inaugural George E. Ohr Art and Beer Festival had over 20 craft beer breweries participate and many South Mississippians came out for a taste. Yeasty Beasty based out of D’Iberville hosted a home brewing competition that the public got to try and vote on a winner.
There were local artists selling their art as well as community art car projects the public could add onto. Ohr-O’Keefe Museum PR and Marketing Director Natalea Thomson said, “The museum hasn’t held a fall festival in three years and we’ve got a new team, a new staff, and we felt like it was perfect timing and so we really wanted to pull the community together. Craft beer festivals are kind of like a niche right now and we wanted to jump on the bandwagon.”
Museum directors say they hope to make this art and beer festival an annual event.
