On August 25th, Sipp Culture, with the support of the Gulf Coast Community Design Studio (GCCDS), partnered with the Town of Utica and the Friends of Utica to produce a Pop Up Coffee Shop on Main Street. The event was held from 9 am – 11 am at the corner of Main St. and White Oak St, the future site of the Main Street Cultural Center.

Sipp Culture provided coffee while Mayor Broome brought a lemon sheet cake from Mrs. Roberta, one of the best cooks in Utica. The cake went fast!

The GCCDS brought maps for the community to view and revise. This event was one of many opportunities for the community to shape the design, function, and purpose of the Main Street Cultural space. The day was bright and short. We are thankful for the support of our partners to make this a successful event. The next pop up will be in the Spring.
