|Louisiana Folk Roots|
WELCOME: Louisiana Folk Roots is a non-profit organization dedicated to nurturing the unique folkways and cultural resources that are of such legendary abundance in Louisiana. From highly refined native crafts to exhilarating traditional music, from distinct regional work methods to folk tales recounted in a multitude of languages, from hot dance steps to cuisine with an almost magical intensity of flavor, Louisiana offers the world a cultural cornucopia unrivaled in its diversity and intensity. Yet these aspects of Louisiana life, which not only give strength to those who reside within the state but also attract hundreds of thousands of visitors from around the world each year, are in many cases losing ground to an increasingly prevalent mainstream American culture.

|Madisonville Wooden Boat Festival|
A Different Kind of Festival
Just about any weekend, somewhere in Louisiana there’s a festival celebrating one of the joys found in the state where Laissez Les Bon Temps Roule is a way of life. Many of these are a celebration of the food, especially the seafood – shrimp, crabs, fish, crawfish, and oysters – that make this area a gourmet’s paradise for residents and a legend around the world. This bounty we enjoy is only possible because of the rich, watery landscape of rivers, bayous, marshes and lakes we have in southeastern Louisiana, a populace that has made harvesting these resources a central part of their culture for over three hundred years, and a unique collection of boats that has evolved to operate in this maritime environment.
Every year, St. Tammany hosts a tribute not to seafood, but to the hand crafted wooden boats that originally made it possible for us to enjoy these marine delicacies. This year on October 16th and 17th, the 15th annual Madisonville Wooden Boat Festival will return to the banks of the Tchefuncte River. Hundreds of boats will line the banks of the Tchefuncte River and as many as 30,000 wooden boat, music, food and craft enthusiasts are expected to attend some or all of the activities on what is typically a lovely fall weekend.
In addition to the craftsmanship and mystique of building, owning and operating classic wooden boats, both locals and visitors from near and far are drawn to this one of a kind festival by its wide variety of attractions and activities designed for the whole family. Visitors are fascinated by the beautifully restored and maintained wooden boats themselves, and can also sample a wide assortment of Louisiana food favorites and shop at craft booths selling marine-related products, art, and handmade craft items. Each day, at a venue dubbed “Woodenstock,” a lineup of top popular local musical groups like the Blue Meanies, Four Unplugged, the Chee Wheez, and the Topcats will play. The always popular Children’s Village with a new lineup of entertainment and activities especially designed for the young ones should be more popular than ever this year, and the annual “Quick and Dirty Boat Race” will draw thousands of spectators to see if boats that were hastily built in a few hours on Saturday can stay afloat on Sunday.
The festival is the primary source of funding for the Lake Pontchartrain Basin Maritime Museum, which has a mission of researching, preserving, and displaying to the public the incredibly rich maritime history of Lake Pontchartrain and the waterways flowing in and out of it. Since opening its first exhibits a little over a year and a half ago, the Museum has assembled a collection that has been extremely well received by visitors, who do not expect to find something of this size and quality in the quaint little town of Madisonville.
The Marshland Festival is a non-profit festival. The festival is held in Lake Charles La, the first weekend of August. The festival raises funds for area youth groups and promotes our Louisiana heritage of Cajun music and Cuisine.
