Join us for dancing, dining, and drinking
under the Louisiana night sky!

Come visit us on Friday, March 11, from 6:30-10 PM for the Hootenanny, a barn dance benefit for Grow Dat!

This year, we are excited to announce Jeffery Broussard and the Creole Cowboys as our headlining performer, along with additional performances by Lost in the Holler and My Wife's Hat!

Local musicians will transform the party into a true hoedown and inspire revelers to kick up their heels. The event will feature square dancing with caller Dan Wally Baker and zydeco lessons with Harold Bernard. Premier local restaurants and chefs will cook up delightful small plates for the event, and we will offer unlimited craft cocktails and ice cold beer.

This year, the Hootenanny is on the farm, rain or shine! Come on out to celebrate on our beautiful farm in beloved City Park!
