Every year one of the biggest Festivals in North Louisiana happens in the Spring. Winnsboro, LA, a small town maybe one hour from Monroe, hosts the Annual Catfish Festival each year. People drive there from all over the region.

The Festival is filled with different seafood samples and catfish dishes. Local chefs and cafes sell their food to visitors to show up the taste of Winnsboro, LA.

One of the best highlights of the Festival is the opportunity for Entrepreneurs and Business Owners to sell or showcase their products. Debra Neal drove all the way from Dallas, TX to participate as a vendor. She sells custom shirts and hats for Grandparents. She is a native of Columbia, LA.

“The Catfish Festival is a great time for me and my sisters to hang out for the weekend and eat some great food. I get to see old classmates and family members,” said Neal. “I believe Grandchildren are the light of the world. So, I make products for people who are proud grandparents like myself. We have T-shirts, caps, and much more. There is so much honor in raising your own kids but even more honor in being a great grandparent,” she says.

Local eateries had tables and chairs outside of their restaurants so people could enjoy great food and not miss a second of the festival. Tens of thousands attend the festival every year.
