Friends & Neighbors,

The time is near for #FMT25.  As you may be well aware, we will be celebrating our 25th year anniversary of being in business in wonderful Natchez, MS on June 14, 2014 and we would like to formally invite you to join us.

Be sure to wish Fat Mama’s a happy birthday on Twitter using hashtag #FMT25, and you will see your tweets throughout the day at FMT through our live twitter feed, where our customers will be able to see tweets throughout the day.

We will have the southern parking lot closed off to traffic as we will have the beer garden set up, with a few tasty brews from around the area, as well as another 8 taps inside.  We will have plenty of shade, fans, music, cool beers, hot music and fun for everyone!

Much love to everyone over the years who have supported Fat Mama’s Tamales, our family and helped us create a unique funky little restaurant in Natchez, it has meant the world to us, and we are excited for the next 25 years!

Fat Mama’s “25 Donkey” Freestanding Art Project

Friends & Neighbors

Fat Mama’s Tamales just released a project on!

We are attempting to crowdfund an art project in Natchez, MS in conjunction with Fat Mama’s Tamales turning the ripe old age of 25 in June 2014.

Fat Mama’s “25 Donkey” Freestanding Art Project, will provide our community free standing donkey sculptures, painted by local artist and artist with a Natchez connection, that we feel inspire, provide art in public places and ultimately enrich the “Natchez Experience” for everyone who lives and visits our community!

The Krewe of Fat Mama’s along with Fat Mama’s Tamales is excited to launch this project and see it through to completion.

This project is an “All-Or-Nothing” project in that all funding must be raised by November 28, 2013, or all pledges will be cancelled and this project will not take place.  Any pledge no matter how large or small is greatly appreciated and will help move this project forward.

We appreciate your support over the last 25 years and being a positive influence in our community for years to come!
