Ebb & Flow Festival

The Official Opening Celebration for Louisiana’s Festival Season!

The Arts Council of Greater Baton Rouge, along with a growing number of artists, creatives, engineers, and architects are creating a new festival for Baton Rouge. The Ebb & Flow Festival, to take place April 1 and 2, 2017, is one that will invite innovation, intrigue, and inspiration to visitors through unique artistic offerings, makerspaces, and culinary delights. 

In true Louisiana fashion, the festival will include a flavorful music lineup, representing local, national, and international talent. Look for two days of performances on multiple stages: the iHeart Radio Stage at Repentance Park, the Cox International Music Stage at Riverfront Plaza, and a Entergy River Stage at the Baton Rouge Dock – also known as the Paperclips. The festival will also feature performances by flamenco dancers, singer songwriters, and slam poets, all set against the backdrop of the country’s grandest waterway – the Mississippi River. 

With creative experiences ranging from yarn bombing and bubble art to creative makerspaces and an interactive sculpture garden, this festival on the Baton Rouge Riverfront is not to be missed. Temporary sculptural installations from Icelandic artist Steinunn Thorarinsdottir will enhance the walking path along the levee. Activities and stations for interactive play will offer opportunities for visitors of all ages to enjoy and learn more about the history of the Mississippi River. They include: “Kidd’s Corner” at the USS Kidd, theatre performances at Louisiana’s Old State Capitol, a storytelling village, a “human library,” and an exhibition by the West Baton Rouge Museum highlighting the river’s connection to Creole culture, Nunu’s French exhibit and more.
