It started over 25 years ago as the St. John Bosco Church Bazaar and has grown to encompass a festival for the young and old with great food, games and music. The festival features a Wild West Show, Horse Shoe Tournament, an Archery Tournament, Bingo and fun jumps for the kids.  Some of the great food you'll find at the festival includes gumbo, catfish, sausage on a stick, boudin, crawfish étouffée, shrimp on a stick, new shrimp/crab creole, homemade tacos, quesadillas, nachos and the famous Bosco burgers! The festival does not charge admission and is held at St. John Bosco Church on Sampson Street in Westlake.
