On Saturday, November 17, 2018, 11am-9pm the second annual Falaya Fest will take place in the Bogue Falaya Wayside Park in historic downtown Covington.
Following the success of its inaugural event last year, Falaya Fest will deliver a grassroots community foray for all ages to enjoy. A unique festival for the Covington area, the day-long event features a diverse lineup of musical talents--double the number featured in the first year--who are rooted in Greater Covington. Featured acts include: The Cheeseburger Ranchers, Davy Crockett & the Wild Frontier, Don Vappie & The Creole Jazz Serenaders, Gal Holiday and the Honky Tonk Revue, Stone Rabbits, Julie Odell, Gabrielle Mandill, Rik Slave & The Phantoms, Timothy Achan Gates and The Telegraph Salesmen.
Bring your lawn chairs and blankets, but leave the picnic baskets and coolers at home. Falaya Fest will have plenty of great food and drinks for purchase by popular local food venders and restaurants to be announced. Last year's vendors included Isabella's Pizzeria, bäcobar, Nkauj Hmoob Street Food, Baba Ghanoush, The Boba Bar - Bubble Tea & Small Bites, PaPa D's Kettle Corn, and Champagne Beverage Company, Inc.
The headlining sponsor, Kombucha Girl Living Beverages, will be offering kombucha on tap. Beer and wine will also be available for purchase.
Advance tickets are $18 and will be available soon on EventBrite. Tickets at the gate will be $20 for ages 11 and up; free admission for children 10 and under.
Proceeds benefit NAMI St. Tammany.
