The Inaugural St. Martinville Catfish Festival is OFFICIAL!. It has been a long-time dream of mine to bring together Louisiana Music and Louisiana Food in a fun environment. Yes, we have festivals all of the time here in Louisiana and this will be another one. The money raised from this site will go towards operating costs, paying the musicians, buying advertising etc.
We have invited several bands, local food trucks and local artists. There will be several kid friendly events during the day, RV sites and tent-camping sites for those who want to spend the entire weekend.
Some of the events planned are: Best Fried Catfish, Best Catfish Dish, A Fried Catfish eating contest, Best Food Truck Dish, Open Mic Jam Session, Cajun Dance Lessons, Golf Cart Drive-in (for the Night-Owls), Cooking Exhibitions and more.
We have secured 30+ Acres in St. Martin Parish for the event and have already started signing bands and vendors. This is an event to showcase the "Louisiana Life" and hospitality. There will be a live auction with 100% of the proceeds from the auction going directly to St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital.
If you can't donate money and are local, you are welcome to donate time or donate good to the auction...everything helps. Look us up on Facebook or on the web.
Thanks for your support.
