The Granddaddy of arts fundraising events in northeast Louisiana, the Blend of the Bayou has enjoyed immense success since its beginning in 1997. This one-of-a-kind event is held the first Sunday in May each year. Area business leaders and professionals who love to cook underwrite and serve their specialties to an eager crowd. Drinks are provided by local sponsors as well as beer crafted by local homebrewers. While enjoying great food and drink, listening to live music, and visiting with old and new friends, attendees can also participate in a silent art auction featuring more than a dozen local artists. Known as the quintessential southern lawn party, the Blend of the Bayou is eagerly anticipated every year. The COVID pandemic forced cancellation of the 2020 event, but with COVID inspired nuances, Blend may be back in 2021. STAY TUNED!


2110 Island Drive, Monroe.

The block party on the bayou is back in 2021 featuring local men who cook, live music, and a silent auction of area artists' works. Ticket proceeds and a portion of the silent auction profits benefit the Arts Council of Northeast Louisiana's programs and services. This years popular event will feature a wide array of delicious food served in a COVID safe manner by prominent area professionals and businessmen who generously volunteer their time and talents. Tickets are available by clicking HERE.
