The Granddaddy of arts fundraising events in northeast Louisiana is returning, but in a new space and with a brand new vibe! Blend of the Bayou has enjoyed immense success since its beginning in 1997 and is the foundation for our new event, BLEND. Imagine an event where the classic Blend of the Bayou is "blended" with our popular North Delta Food & Wine Festival, while paying homage to many classic Blend of the Bayou elements we all know and love!

BLEND will be held this year in Downtown Monroe at the River Market on Sunday, May 1, 2022 from 3pm to 7pm, in cooperation with the City of Monroe. This block party on the river featuring local men and women who cook, local favorite restaurant chefs, live music, drinks by local sponsors and a silent auction of area artists' works is set to be the top fundraising event of the year. Awards will be given to “Best of Blend – Restaurant” & “Best of Blend – Home Cook”. Ticket proceeds benefit the Arts Council of Northeast Louisiana's programs and services.
