Returning to the banks of the Ouachita River, it's northeast Louisiana's premiere food, wine, and arts festival, BLEND. This festival features local men and women who cook, local legendary restaurant chefs, live music, drinks by local sponsors, and a silent auction of works by Region 8 artists. Awards will be given to "Best of Blend-Restaurant" and "Best of Blend-Home Cook." No one under the age of 21 is permitted to attend. Go out and taste this blend of the bayou's finest flavors!
