So what is Chuck Fest? In 2019, Chuck Fest will celebrate its 6th annual festival in the heart of Downtown Lake Charles. Its focus is everything local: food/restaurants, artists, designers, retail shops, local breweries and distilleries, (and others) show up for 10+ hours of selling and marketing their goods alongside five stages, over 50 live musical acts.

This year the Chuck Fest Foundation will take a portion of the proceeds from Chuck Fest and put it back into the community through a variety of trainings, workshops, and other activities, focusing on our area's talent, students, and those who struggle with unemployment.
