A family-friendly event is FREE to the public. This annual food and music festival is the sister festival to Baton Rouge's wildly successful 5th Soul Food Festival. This Festival features Southern Cooking as opposed to Soul Food. and represents the foods and culture of the deep south. It was also established to salute individuals, organizations, and companies for their efforts to improve the quality of life for people from all walks of life in the Baton Rouge community. This year the Festival is looking to see what foods are out there and who wants to share their food culture with our community

In addition to the rich food of the deep south, the Festival features blues, soul, R&B and gospel music. 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 VIP tickets that include food, soft drinks, and photo ops. Enhanced VIP tickets ($100 for 2) include T-shirts, music downloads, and additional perks.

This year, the Festival was renamed and given an expanded theme due to the popularity of the 5th Baton Rouge Soul Food Festival. The city-wide interest this Festival created made us realize that Baton Rouge was ready for another food Festival. A Pre-Party will be held Thursday, Nov. 3, 2022, at Henry Turner Jr’s Listening Room (2733 North St, Baton Rouge, LA 70802) from 8:00 pm to midnight.
