Southeastern Louisiana's popular, juried Three Rivers Art Festival will celebrate its 25th anniversary in person this year on Saturday and Sunday, November 13 and 14, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Nestled in the Cultural Arts District of Downtown Covington, the festival will feature over 200 artists from across the country, who will showcase their talents to attendees. Art enthusiasts will marvel at the assortment of paintings, ceramics, woodcarvings, and other crafts.
Young artists from St. Tammany Parish are encouraged to participate in a contest where more than 400 students submit their artwork and have it displayed at the festival.
In addition to viewing and buying artwork, attendees can listen to live music performed by talented musicians, watch pop-up tango, and enjoy cooking from an assortment of food trucks. Children can also participate in making arts and crafts at the Children's Discovery Area.
The festival will also host a concert at the Covington Trailhead every evening on Saturday. The concert will feature the duo 8 Track Acoustic, who will perform from 5:30 to 6:15 p.m., and New Orleans jazz singer Charmaine Neville, who will perform from 8 to 9:30 p.m.
Over the past 25 years, Three Rivers grew from a small celebration of 49 local artists to a gigantic gala for over 200 artists, attracting more than 50,000 visitors a year.
"Three Rivers celebrates the arts in all its forms--visual art, music, performance, and more--and brings some of the best artists in the country to showcase their work here on the Northshore," Three Rivers Art Festival Coordinator Sarada Bonnett said. "We are thrilled to celebrate 25 incredible years for our festival in our uniquely artistic community of Covington."
