3rd Annual Experience Louisiana Festival
The mission of the festival is to display the best Louisiana has to offer on one, amazing site—Campus of LSU Eunice. Approximately only three hours from every corner of the state and easily accessible to national and international visitors, Eunice is a perfect place to celebrate everything this great state has to offer. The focus of this event is to not just display the best of Louisiana including its sights, sounds, tastes, culture and people, but to provide hands-on experiences. This will be accomplished through several demonstrations such as an old time boucherie and mini traditional Mardi Gras run. Other major components of the festival include a music stage, artists and folk life, cooking demonstrations, a walk-through of Louisiana, cook-off, antique car show, food and craft vendors. Print the
