2nd Annual Dugdemona Fest, This Saturday!

Independence Day celebrations may have passed, but the celebrating never really ends in Louisiana. Our state isn’t called The Festival Capital of America without reason. The Dugdemona Summer Festival is one of over 400 different festivals held in Louisiana each year. Winnfield’s newest festival is celebrating its second year on Saturday, July 8, 2017. As a special ‘tip of the hat’ to our festival, Lieutenant Governor Billy Nungesser will be attending his first ever Dugdemona Summer Festival. Several of the Dug’ board members and Chamber of Commerce and Tourism members had the opportunity to meet Mr. Nungesser a few months ago, and sparked his interest with talk about the festival.
