Brown Bag Festival Fall 2021

The Northeast Louisiana Arts Council are returning with the Brown Bag Concert Series once again. Every Wednesday at noon throughout the month of October 2021, a local concert will be held at Palace Park in Monroe. These concerts will feature the likes of Josh Love, Josh Madden, Legal & 'Lectric, and appearances from students within the Concert Choir from the University of Louisiana at Monroe.

Georgia Street of the Northeast Louisiana Arts Council expressed her excitement for this year's festival series: "It is always on a Wednesday so it gives you a lovely break in the middle of the week and you get to enjoy the outside with some fun music." 

These will all be free events with $5 box lunches, water, and lemonade being provided on site. In the case of rain, the concert will be moved inside to the Palace Dept. store next door to the park. 

For more information, contact the Arts Council office at (318) 397-6717 or (318) 397-6754.
