Festival Overview


​FOLKLIFE VILLAGE
     Coordinated by the National Park Service.  The 2018 festival will feature folk demonstrators.  The beauty of this component is its simplicity:  folk artists at work, communicating with festival guests by telling stories, answering questions and sharing tradition in a personal way.  Folklife Village is a core component of the festival as organizers place a high value on the preservation, promotion and documentation of Louisiana folk art and crafts.
MUSIC STAGE     Features great Louisiana musical talent.  Eunice's own Todd Ortego serves as emcee on stage.  

ARTIST VILLAGE     Hosted by the local artists and features the work of Louisiana artists from a wide variety of genres and mediums – including folk art, classical art, pottery, glass, photography, and more.  Artist Village will also have many activities for children throughout the weekend.
WALK-THROUGH LOUISIANA     The walk-through is a unique and exciting element of the festival.  This area affords communities, parishes, tourist centers, festivals, and regional entities the ability to showcase themselves in whatever manner they choose.
FILM VILLAGE    Hosted by filmmaker Pat Mire and Cinema on the Bayou.  Louisiana films are featured throughout the weekend, often with the filmmaker present, sharing dialogue with guests following the showing of their work.  Films are shown in the Acadian Center (adjacent to the festival grounds).. 
FOOD VILLAGE     Restaurants, organizations, and individuals selling a delicious variety of cuisine!  Features a wide variety of Louisiana cuisine, ranging from backbone stew to poboys, cracklins and boudin to gumbo. 
ATHLETIC EVENTS     LSUE Bengal Baseball will play two games on Oct 20 vs McNeese State University (1pm) and LSU Alexandria (4pm).
CLASSIC CAR  & TRUCK SHOW
