Getting to the festival is even simpler this year. Two trolleys will pick up guests at several locations in the city.

Pickups will take place at the following locations:

  • Scott Park
  • Behind Don’s on Harold Gauthe Road
  • Corner of West Park and Frontage by the Holiday Inn
  • The Begnaud House on Benoit Patin Road.

The trolleys will be free to use and will drop off at Lion’s Club Road and St. Mary.

No outside food or drink, animals, or ice chests will be allowed on the festival grounds.
