Louisiana festivals are known for great food, music and authentic arts and crafts. Family Gras is part of this tradition by featuring an incredible art market! The Art Market at Family Gras features hand-made jewelry, folk art, local and regional photography, unique hand-crafted items for the home and individual wear, as well as fun Mardi Gras hair pieces, accessories and clothing!
It is open Friday, Saturday and Sunday one hour prior to the opening entertainment.
We pride ourselves on being a family-friendly event and always offer plenty of activities to keep the kiddos entertained! This year we are taking it one step further! On Saturday and Sunday, Pampers will have a pop up Airstream located on festival grounds featuring deluxe diaper changing rooms, breast feeding stations and FREE diapers.
