Experience Louisiana Festival

Experience Louisiana Festival discontinued

The Experience Louisiana Festival announced on its website and Facebook page that the four-year-old event held at LSUE has been discontinued.
The festival, first held in 2015, offered an expansive vision of what a community festival could be. With the National Park Service as a partner, the festival offered venues to highlight life in Louisiana.
The festival was organized and staffed primarily by members of the Eunice Rotary Club.

Festival ‘did well’

The third annual Experience Louisiana Festival opened Saturday after a rainy Friday that turned parts of the LSUE campus into wet messes.
And the wind blew Saturday with a bit of chill as temperatures struggled to get out of the 40s.
But festival organizer Pat Dossman said, “Right now, from what I’m seeing, we did well.”
The festival is a project of the Eunice Rotary Club to fund a scholarship for LSUE students.

Festival ready for weekend experience

The Experience Louisiana Festival returns for a third time on the LSUE campus and adds an Agriculture Village to its village-theme activities.
The festival begins at 9:45 a.m. Saturday near the Community Education Building with a ribbon-cutting ceremony.
Among those doing the honors for the ceremony will be Dr. Bobby Fletcher of the Louisiana Department of Agriculture and Dr. Boyd Pagett, regional director of the LSU AgCenter out of Alexandria.

Serious side to 2 days of fun at the Experience Louisiana Festival

The Experience Louisiana Festival is about two days of fun and informative activities in October at the LSUE campus.
But the festival, which is organized out of the Eunice Rotary Club, has a serious side and that was explained by Pat Dossman to the Eunice Kiwanis Club on Thursday.
As with most Rotary Club events, such as the Zydeco Triathlon and its new golf tournament, money is raised for the club’s causes such as the Eunice Community Health Clinic.
