Washington Community Festival

March 23, 2024


404 North Main Street
Washington LA 70589
The Washington Community Festival is an effort to revitalize the former Catfish Festival which was historically held in the steamboat town. It will take place on March 19 along Washington’s Main Street from 10am to 9pm. The event will host three blocks of vendors, live music, an antique car show, and a Catfish Gravy Cook-Off. The Bayou Courtableau has been famous for many years for its large catfish, so this cook-off fits right in with the heritage of the area and is a subtle nod to the older festival. There will also be a silent auction and a Kid’s Korner featuring games for children of all ages. Event Schedule: 10am – 12pm, Easter Bunny 10am – 5pm, Disc Jockey Music 6pm, Don Fontenot & Les Amis de la Louisiane Catfish Gravy Cook-Off
