What: This year’s Rougarou Fest in downtown Houma will be Saturday, October 21, 2017 from 10am to 10pm and Sunday, October 22, 2017 from 10am to 5pm. The Rougarou Fest is a family-friendly festival with a spooky flair that celebrates the rich folklore that exists along the bayous of Southeast Louisiana. It is also the primary fundraiser supporting the South Louisiana Wetlands Discovery Center, a nonprofit, tax exempt organization, that is revolutionizing how we think, teach and learn about Louisiana’s disappearing coast. We are expecting 8,000+ people to attend the festival this year. You can learn more about the festival from our Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/RougarouFest or visit our website at www.rougaroufest.org.

How: Vendors will be assigned a 10×10 space and are responsible for providing their own tent, tables, chairs, lighting, extension cords, garbage cans and change.
