Louisiana Beer Festival

The Lake area's newest festival
 

 
It's brand-spankin'-new, but the idea seems fool-proof. On Saturday, Sept. 24, the new Louisiana Beer Festival will take over the Lake Charles Civic Center. VIPs can enter at 11 a.m. and the rest of the world can get in at noon. Featuring more than 100 beers from across the state, nation and planet, it seems like a pretty safe bet that a good time will be had by all. The beers, featuring micro-brews and craft beers, will be accompanied by food — not unlike a wine-tasting. It's just upscale enough to be respectable … but there's beer, dude.

The Marshland Festival

One of the few Louisiana festivals geared toward raising funds for area schools.

 

 

So what festival DOESN'T offer fun, food and games?  But how many festivals raise money for schools?  How many are dedicated to children while still providing a ridiculously good time and great music? Twenty-two years ago, a group of parents, school teachers and administrators were concerned for the youth of Hackberry, La. These various groups of this northwestern Cameron Parish town were trying to provide a way to fund various school, church, and community organizations. Through these efforts, the Marshland Festival was born, and it's one of Lake Charles' finest events!

Contraband Days

One of Lake Charles' oldest festivals

 

 

Once a year during the first two weeks in May, the city of Lake Charles, La., returns to rollicking, swashbuckling days of the pirates and buccaneers who once sailed the area's lakes, rivers, and bayous. Legend has it that the notorious pirate Jean Lafitte buried his contraband treasure somewhere along the Southwest Louisiana's plentiful waterways. The celebration of this historic figure and his adventures has grown into a twelve-day extravaganza of unmatched festivity.
