Fire and Water Rural Arts Celebration has expanded to a two-day event as part of the 7-day long cultural conference, La Semaine Francaise d'Arnaudville or French Week! LSF is a cultural economy conference emphasizing the use of Creative Placemaking. What better way to end the summit than with festivities that celebrate the arts?
Born following the aftermath of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, Fire and Water featured signature floating fires and the work of visual artists with only a sampling of other artistic disciplines; however, over the last several years the event has expanded to become more of a celebration featuring a multitude of local artists, performers and cultural workers in a variety of disciplines and genres. Participate in cooking demos, and watch feature films. Hear live music, listen to poetry and shop local art vendors. Plus, don't miss the traditional peace march, honoring veterans to Bayou Warehouse, where the traditional fire is set ablaze upon Bayou Fusilier. It is a truly unique French Louisiana celebration.
