Torch Bearer of Southern Louisiana ~ 1st Annual Flambeau Fest ~ October 7 & 8

Mark the dates now. Saturday & Sunday, October 7 & 8, 2017.

The Torch Bearer is coming to Southern Lousiana. That is, the first annual Flambeau Fest, and it will be an immersive experience unlike any other within 500 miles.

It starts with an exceptional venue, Ascension Fields at Lamar Dixon in Gonzales, Jambalaya Capital of the World, just minutes south of Baton Rouge.

Next comes the family vibe. Producer Pi Entertainment took great care to create Flambeau as a happening for the whole clan. Children 10 & under are invited free – as long as they bring along one or more of their adults. A Kid’s Corral will give them a zone of their own to hang out, play and enjoy music & entertainment suited just for them.

There is so much more, but first to the heart of the matter. The Music.

The superstar country and classic rock headliners Sam Hunt, Hank Williams Jr, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Dustin Lynch, Chase Rice, Blackberry Smoke, Jacob Davis and many more will ignite Flambeau over an explosive two days.

Three music spaces, the Main Stage, Torch Stage & Songwriter Stage will host a lineup blending country, southern rock, bluegrass, Americana, rockabilly & acoustic talent, from international stars, to regional favorites & gifted songwriters.

Three tiers of ticket options, General Admission, VIP and Platinum, will appeal to every budget & amenity need.

Of course, it wouldn’t be the Bayou State without superb cuisine & beverages.

The Food Promenade will serve up a wide range of savory traditional culinary fare as well as vegan & vegetarian options. The Louisiana Libations pavilion will include eight local craft breweries, two local distilleries & two local wineries. Over 20 Louisiana vendors will assure that every palette is satisfied & every thirst quenched.

Local artisans will offer an array of unique arts, crafts & creations found nowhere else.

Pi Entertainment scrutinized every detail to assure a pleasant & wholesome experience, down to the sanitation accommodations. Nowhere will there be any rows of portalets festival goers have come to know & dread for decades. In their place will be separate women’s & men’s 'oasis' areas, with state of the art clean & hygienic flushable 'facilities' & fresh water hand wash stations.

One might expect such upgrades for VIP patrons, but Pi recognizes the benefits not only to every guest but also to the residents of Gonzales, neighboring communities, Louisiana – and Planet Earth.

From open to close, the 1st annual Flambeau Fest promises to be Torch Bearer in Southern Louisiana attendees will enjoy, talk about & remember for years to come.
