We love to celebrate our culture and way of life in Baton Rouge and we do so through festivals of all kinds. Annual food festivals, music festivals, holiday festivals, no matter what reason or season you’re visiting the capital city, you there’s a Baton Rouge festival for you! We revel in our southern Louisiana ways and put our traditions on a pedestal for all to see and enjoy. Our Cajun and creole influences, bluesy roots and proud heritages are all celebrated through Baton Rouge festivals year-round!
