Started 5 years ago as the Henry Turner Jr. Day Celebration (HTJDay). This annual food and music Festival was established to salute individuals, organizations, and companies for their ongoing philanthropic efforts to improve the quality of life for people in all walks of life in the Baton Rouge community. A Pre-Party will be held Thursday, Nov. 4, 2021at Henry Turner Jr’s Listening Room from 8:00pm to midnight. The venue is located at 2733 North Street, Baton Rouge, LA 70802. Tickets are $25 and include a buffet and soft drinks. The show is a sneak peek of the talent lineup for the festival.
This year, the Festival was renamed and given an expanded theme due to the popularity of last June’s 4th Annual Baton Rouge Soul Food Festival. The city-wide interest this Festival created made us realize that Baton Rouge was ready for another food Festival.
In 2021, HTJDay takes on the challenge of presenting a food & music festival that will represent the vast variety of food found in the deep south. So, get ready for a weekend of great food from Louisiana and its surrounding southern neighbors, incredible music from local and national touring musicians and lots of fun at Riverfront Plaza. This park is located next to the USS Kidd on the Mississippi River on Sat. & Sun., Nov. 6 & 7, 2021 at the 5th Taste of the Deep South Festival!
