The 6th Annual A Taste of the Deep South Festival will take place Sat, & Sun., Nov. 5 & 6 at Riverfront Plaza located in Downtown Baton Rouge (300 River Road South, Baton Rouge, LA 70802). This park is located next to the USS Kidd on the Mississippi River. Festival hours are 11:00am to 8:00pm each day.

This family-friendly event is free to the public and features blues, soul, rock and funk music, and dance troupes. Along with the entertainment, the Festival features a Vendor’s Village and of course a wide variety of food vendors serving the rich food of the Deep South. There’s lawn seating, so bring your chairs. Basic $25 VIP Food tickets include 2 plates of food from the festival kitchen, 2 soft drinks and photo ops. Enhanced VIP tickets ($100 for 2) include T-shirts, CDs of Henry Turner Jr. & Flavor, covered seating near the stage, food and sodas or water for 2 from the festival kitchen and alcoholic beverages for 2 from the festival bar, as well as additional perks to be determined. These tickets can be purchased at www.HTJday.com or at the Festival information booth onsite.

Started 6 years ago as the Henry Turner Jr. Day Celebration (HTJDay), this annual food and music Festival is now being renamed and given an expanded theme due to the popularity of last May’s 5th Annual Baton Rouge Soul Food Festival. The city-wide interest and success of this Festival made the team realize that Baton Rouge was ready for another food Festival.

This year, HTJDay takes on the challenge of presenting a food & music festival that represents the vast variety of food and entertainment found in the Deep South. So, get ready for a weekend of great food from Louisiana and its surrounding southern neighbors, incredible music from local and national touring musicians and lots of fun.
