Mississippi Queen Foods will be at the Wasaga Beach Blues Festival, August 25th & 26th
If you are in the Wasaga area, on August 25th & 26th, you can get your hands on some of my infamous Blackened Catfish; Seafood Gumbo; Cajun Jambalaya; Buttermilk Cornbread; Spicy Coleslaw; and Southern Pecan Pie.
This is a relatively new blues festival, in only its second year, but comes packing a strong punch this year, with the artist lineup. I am happy to be a part of it, and lookin' forward to bringing some authentic, Southern/Creole/Cajun food to the Wasaga Beach area!

Mississippi Queen Foods will have the 'Catfish & Seafood Shack' set up at Port Credit's
Southside Shuffle, September 7th- 9th
Ok, it's quickly approaching this year......the Southside Shuffle, and this year, it's newly revamped, with several stages, and more talent than you can possibly see at once! It's considered one of Ontario's Top 100 Festivals, for a darned good reason, and if you have not attended previously...now is the time. Great blues....great food....and great folks, all weekend long.
The Mississippi Queen will be set up with her juke joint/fish shack, in the 'Mississauga Meets Mississippi' area, welcoming my Miss'ippi Friends, to the Mississauga area, once again. Be sure to stop by the booth, because there are always a few 'surprises' in store.
I'll have Blackened Catfish; Jambalaya; Seafood Gumbo; Red Beans & Rice; Buttermilk Cornbread; Spicy Coleslaw; and Pecan Pie...and, as well, the Southern Groceries will be on dispaly, and for sale, should any of you wish to do a lil shoppin' at the festival.
These are a couple of shots I took, of my booth, the 'Catfish & Seafood Shack', at the Kitchener Blues Festival, very quickly
with my iPhone. The one in the middle is a resalvaged grocery display unit, which I constructed of materials, salvaged from
my Pa Pa's old chicken coops, originally built in the 1950's. The gate is made from an old, rusted, mattress frame and refrigerator
shelves, and the old, original chicken feeders are on the top of the unit. The sides have chicken wire, and it is finished off with
Pa Pa's old Mississippi license plate. Yes, I felt his energy with me, all weekend......

and Spicy Coleslaw
Not too shabby, considering this is what I whooped up, on Sunday morning, at the Kitchener Blues Festival, on the fly, after running out of ALL of the food, which I brough in, for the ENTIRE WEEKEND, by 8:00 p.m. on Saturday night!!!!!
Thank you for your love, support, and encouragement, Kitchener, for you are always so, very good to me!
I am forever grateful.........the Mississippi Queen
Another 'Buying Trip' South, will take place sooner....rather than later!!!!
Yes, I am thinking of another trip South, in either late September, or early October.
I am very happy to say my company is growing, and more and more people are finding my online General Store, especially by way of the YouTube videos, which I have been uploading.
Unfortunately, I am experiencing some 'growing pains', and as many of you have found, I am running out of many products, much faster than normal. To meet this growing demand, for Southern products, I will make additional trips, each year, most likely in April, September, and January.
For those of you who are new to my process, please feel free to contact me, with any of your special requests, for my next 'Buying Trip' South. I do keep these requests on file, and I always send out plenty of advance notifications, prior to my trips.
