Last year we had an estimated 6000 people of all ages attend the 2-day Festival held in the beautiful Paola Park Square. We are pleased to have provided a fun and entertaining event for our community. Just a sample of last years festival highlights include, a wide variety of live music featuring "The Maverick’s", "Chubby Carrier & the Bayou Swamp Band", "Rod Piazza & the Mighty Flyers", "Ben Miller Band" and "Trampled Under Foot".

Other great festival attractions included ethnic dancers, arts & crafts, food vendors, a State Championship BBQ Cook-off and for our younger festival goers, great games, fun rides and a creative sidewalk chalk contest!

Price to get into the festival is $15 per person per day rain or shine! Kids 10 and under get in free.
