Louisiana's oldest agricultural celebration, The International Rice Festival, is this weekend in Crowley. Multi-platinum recording artist Joe Diffie will round out the entertainment line-up with a performance on the main stage Saturday night. The best part? It's a free festival!
The Great Acadian Awakening Music Festival is scheduled for the first weekend in October to celebrate the 250th anniversary of the arrival of what we now call our "Cajun" ancestors from the area known today as Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island.
The tickets for one of the most popular events in southwest Louisiana, Arts & Crabs Fest, are on sale now. If the past is any indication, they won't last long!
The signature event benefits the Arts & Humanities Council of SWLA, and features some of the most delicious crab dishes from the best chefs paired with local beers from Louisiana breweries.
It's almost July and that means it's watermelon time. Is there anything much better on a hot summer day that a big slice of ice cold watermelon? You'll find plenty of watermelon and all things associated with a great festival this weekend in DeRidder.
