Local and regional vendors showcased their mouthwatering signature dishes, craft beers, and cocktails as well as artisan creations on the festival grounds just across from the main stage. Festival-goers had the opportunity to sample everything from alligator sausage too spicy creole fries, and the community-oriented hospitality that defines Southern Louisiana culture truly came to life on the grounds of the fest this past weekend.
In addition to the main stage excitement, Flambeau Fest boasted two other stages that provided music ahead of the main stage performances. The Torch Stage and the Songwriters’ Tent hosted an incredible mix of rising and regional talent to get patrons excited for what was to come on the main stage.
Flambeau Fest is successfully driving tourism dollars to the effort to rebuild Baton Rouge, serving as the first large-scale musical event since the devastating floods. In addition, a portion of the proceeds from this year’s event has been donated to the Lynyrd Skynyrd Foundation for education and cultural impact.
