The Inaugural St. Denis Fest-Fun, Food, Music, and Shopping

Rue St. Denis in the Downtown Historic Business District in Natchitoches is host to an eclectic group of businesses. From tattoos to flowers, antiques, savory spices and vinyl records, there is a wide variety of shopping experiences to choose from.

The merchants of Rue St. Denis sponsored the first St. Denis Fest, Saturday, September 10. The event featured live music from local musicians, craft vendors and food trucks. Festivalgoers were able to stroll along the blocked off street and enjoy downtown Natchitoches’ unique ambiance as they shopped, ate and listened to live music.

The St. Denis Fest is a wonderful idea and a welcome addition to our city’s cultural and musical scene. The Natchitoches Parish Journal applauds these business people’s efforts to bring additional entertainment events to our community. May this year’s St Denis Fest be the first of many more.
