The 2023 Iowa Rabbit Festival is coming your way from March 16th through 18th, 2023 in lake Charles. As we reported a couple of weeks ago, the entertainment lineup for the festival was announced but the times and dates they will perform were not announced until now.

The festival will take place on at the Burton Coliseum in South Lake Charles and will feature a cookoff, rabbit show, a carnival, food, and a lot of great live music.

The Cookoff will take place in the barn next to the Burton on Saturday, March 18th. It will also feature three artists performing live at the cookoff. Also this year, they are bringing back the rabbit show. Bring the kids and let them see live rabbits and pet them.

Here is a complete list of the events including performance days and times for all the entertainment playing at this year's festival.
