Celebrate 300 years at chamber gala

Published 12:11 am Sunday, October 23, 2016

The Natchez-Adams County Chamber of Commerce invites everyone to the 2016 Gala Membership Celebration. Mark your calendars for 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 1, at the Natchez Convention Center.

We are excited about this year’s event as we celebrate our not only our 108th year as a Chamber but also our city’s 300th birthday. Our gala will represent the best of what we have in Natchez: our people. We will have a fun and festive time while recognizing those that have joined together for the purpose of promoting the progress of our great community.

Our gala theme is “Celebrating 300 Years”. We will feature Natchez’s best chefs, musicians, beer vendors, mixologists, live and silent auctions and more. We will have local restaurants offering samplers from the finest in town featuring a dish of our Natchez heritage — American Indian, French, English or Spanish; a beer garden with locally brewed beers, a mixology table with local rum and, of course, local music. To start the night, we will have the pleasure of hosting Alcorn State’s Jazz Band. Following them will be the sweet tunes of local musicians Speakeasy and closing the night out we will have a little dancing and party music with sounds from Cha Cha Boo a classic rock band that not only plays locally but for events across Mississippi and Louisiana. A photo booth with costumes from our past will help us to commemorate this event. This occasion should be an amazing night of celebrating what Natchez does best: have a good time! So come join in the fun!
