Blend of the Bayou


Due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation, we are disappointed to announce that Blend of the Bayou 2020 has been cancelled.

However, this is the time to virtually come together – by staying home – to ensure we protect the health and safety of our community and come back stronger than ever before.
Blend of the Bayou is a significant source of income for the Arts Council, which allows us to support your Arts Community. Please consider using your Blend “ticket money” to make a donation to support the arts, or even better – become an Arts Council member today. If you are already a member, please consider renewing early.

On May 3 from 5:00pm – 7:00pm I encourage you to fire up your grill, get a glass of your favorite beverage and step outside to enjoy the evening. Have a mini Blend at your home. We’ll be back next year, so mark your calendar for Sunday, May 2, 2021. In the meantime, Wash Those Hands and be careful out there!
