St. John the Baptist Parish Director of Economic Development, Jerry W. Jones Jr. introduced this year’s festival poster artists, Dana Bardell Wallace. Wallace offered remarks regarding her inspiration for this year’s festival poster.
"This year's Andouille Festival was a huge success and was a testament to months of hard work and planning by a great parish team,” said Natalie Robottom, St. John the Baptist Parish President. “Each year we strive to improve and grow the festival and this year was record-setting for attendance and activities. The Gumbo Cook-off and the addition of a General Store were hugely successful. They provided festival goers with options for actively participating and gathering mementos of a great weekend."
