One of the biggest festivals in the Southeastern United States, the 2021 Marshland Festival is headed your way. The festival is set to get underway next Friday and Saturday July 30th and 31st at the Lake Charles Civic Center.

It is so good to see festivals coming back especially the Marshland Festival as they had to postpone it last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Imagine how excited we all are that we finally get our festival back.

Remember why the festival is held.  To raise money for the youth and originations in the Hackberry community.
