The 5th Annual Chuckfest is quickly approaching. An event that has grown to over 14,000 visitors in attendance during the day in Downtown Lake Charles. What started as an idea from Luna's owner, Dave Evans, it has become a staple of Downtown Lake Charles quickly to showcase local food, music, and art.

This year will feature 5 stages of live music with different genres, local food, and local artists showing and selling their items in the Downtown area. It is a family friendly event, guaranteed to have something for everyone wanting to explore the downtown area.

The proceeds of Chuckfest go to the Chuckfest Foundation that gives back to the community through persons unemployed, artists, and students by providing them the training and tools they need to be successful.

The event is totally free to the public to enter, food and beverages will be sold. They also have VIP tickets available to give you a true, one of a kind, experience. The VIP ticket includes 3 free drinks, free food from local vendors, VIP restrooms, and a goodie bags full of local vendor goodies.

To purchase your VIP tickets, you can go to the Chuckfest Website when they go on sale September 10.
