Mason Dixie Biscuit Co. holds its first annual Biscuit Jam, a music, food and arts festival, at the Industrious Warehouse (1900 Kendall St NE) on Saturday, Aug. 6 from noon-10 p.m.

Biscuit Jam, which celebrates Mason Dixie Biscuit Co.’s second year in business, will feature local musical talent from Jonny Grave & The Tombstones, The Bumper Jacksons, Justin Trawick & The Common Good and more. Live graffiti installations from artists in the collaborative One Love Massive will also be displayed.

Food trucks, retail vendors, vendors from Union Kitchen, a pop-up oyster bake from Ivy City Smokehouse and a pop-up dog park will all be featured during the festival.

There will also be a jam contest featuring samples of Mason Dixie Biscuits.

“I know this is a huge undertaking,” Mason Dixie Biscuit Co. CEO Ayeshah Abuelhiga said in a statement. “But this is our chance to celebrate all of the wonderful craft that is happening in D.C. now. From food, to liquor distilleries, to art, we are a part of a growing producer scene, especially in Ivy City, so what better way to celebrate our second anniversary than with our fellow industry friends, customers, neighbors and other artists.”

General admission tickets start at $10. VIP tickets are $125 and includes an open bar for beer and wine.

Proceeds benefit the D.C. Arts and Humanities Education Collaborative to raise money for arts in D.C. public schools.
