Join us on the farm for Grow Dat’s annual fundraiser, the Hootenanny! Kick up your heels to boot-stompin' tunes from headliner Cedryl Ballou & The Zydeco Trendsetters and local acts Lost in the Holler and My Wife's Hat. The evening will also feature zydeco dance lessons and square dancing! Get ready to dance under the Louisiana night sky and enjoy farm games led by youth leaders, delicious small plates from local restaurants, and unlimited craft cocktails and ice cold beer!
Don't miss one of the best local parties of the year! Join us as we listen to live music and dance in celebration of local food, agriculture, and New Orleans youth!
Tickets are $45 and $60 at the door.
— Patron Party Details:
From 5:30 — 6:30, we will host the Hootenanny's first patron party! The patron party will be an intimate evening of storytelling at the intersection of food and identity with stories from our staff, board, and fellows. This unique opportunity to hear the voices of Grow Dat will be accompanied by appetizers and cocktails from Chef Tory McPhail and his James Beard award-winning team of Commander's Palace.
— Many thanks to our sponsors, whose generous contributions make the Hootenanny possible each year!
