The morning bike ride has been cancelled, so please do not come early for that aspect our our festival. The Paddle to the Party and the Fstival Main Event activities are on!! For the paddle, don’t forget that we have a shuttle leaving from the boat launch at 9 am for $5 cash. Drop off your boats and extra paddlers at Poches, go park at the festival and ride the bus back. It’s that easy!
The weather forecast is all over the place, but at this point, we are hopeful that everything will go as planned. If we have to, we’ll adjust the time of the paddle parade to avoid rain. Also, please know that we have a covered option for the festival under the courtyard and in the gymnasium at the St. Bernard School. SOOO, the party will go on rain or shine. Please know that your attendance and support in a rain event is all that more appreciated as this festival is our primary fundraiser, and our non-profit work to build the Bayou Teche National Paddle Trail depends on proceeds from this festival. Besides, we have great music (Stop the Clock, Steve Riley and Mamou Playboys and Horace Trahan and the Ossun Express), fun kids activities, 2 kayaks to raffle, cool exhibits, talks and artwork, and delicious food that you won’t want to miss. So, come Shake Your Trail Feathers with us no matter what the weather brings!!
