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
Gal Holiday and the Honky Tonk Revue
Davy Crockett & the Wild Frontier
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, beer, wine and soft drinks for purchase by popular local food venders and restaurants. Advance tickets are $18 and are available on EventBrite. Tickets at the gate are $20 for ages 11 and up; admission is free for children 10 and under.

Bogue Falaya Park is located in the heart of downtown Covington at 213 Park Drive. Parking inside the park is free but very limited; free street parking is available throughout the downtown area.
This year a portion of the proceeds from Falaya Fest will go to NAMI St. Tammany, the local chapter of the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI). This nonprofit provides education, advocacy, resources and support for individuals and their families who live with mental health issues. Last year the organization reached more than 10,000 families, businesses, and individuals impacted by mental illness in our community.
