Authors, Artisans, and Aromas Fair

Main St. will be bustling Saturday from 10-3 as published authors with something to say about the south share their books, artists will display their original art at a local gallery, music will fill the air, and food trucks and food vendors will be on hand to sell the food the south is famous for. Come to shop, come to browse, come to eat, come to listen, come to dance, come to visit. There will be something for everyone as you wander through the award winning Main St. along scenic Bayou Teche.

Check back for application posted here soon.
