The Arts Council of Northeast Louisiana is excited to premier ARTvent!

Starting December 1st, for a total of 12 consecutive days, the Arts Council will be drawing for prizes to be given away to several lucky winners.

Tickets to enter are JUST $50 each and give you a chance to win every day.  Prizes range from a bayou staycation weekend stay at Bayou LongBeard AirBnb to a dinner party for six at Parish Restaurant with a private tour and tasting at Flying Tiger Brewery.  Prize packages include jewelry, gift cards, fine wine and spirits, limited edition artwork, a pet package, private jazz concert, additional AirBnB stays, health products, and much more!  But that’s not all! Even after winning a daily prize, you will STILL be eligible for the Grand Prize drawing that includes a 7-night condo stay at Perdido Key, Amanda Johnson Art, and two Andrea May Hinton travel mugs.  Each prize package has been thoughtfully curated by the Arts Council and our gracious donors.

COVID-19 has forced many organizations to re-invent their approach to funding their mission.  With the annual North Delta Food & Wine Festival unable to celebrate its 6th year this fall, we at the Arts Council have redirected our efforts to this COVID-safe way to give EVERYONE a chance to support the arts AND win unique and exciting prizes just in time for the holidays.

Tickets go on sale October 1st.  They will be available online as well as from any Arts Council board member or through the Arts Council office.

Prize packages are detailed below – simply hover over each package box for a complete package item and value breakdown. Also, a complete list of our day sponsors and prize donors can be found at the bottom of this page – be sure and click on their names to be directed to their own personal websites or social media pages as we share the support!

arising from the failure of the payment.
