Halloween Art & Nature Festival 2021

October 30 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm

The Halloween Art & Nature Festival is a one-day free event inviting all children and families to celebrate Halloween and Louisiana’s special natural surroundings, through art, music, food and science.
This year, the festival’s theme will be “Plants versus Zombies” (after the popular video game) and it will include all sorts of spooktacular fun Halloween art and craft educational activities such as:
African Ritualistic Artifacts Imbued with Spiritual Power exhibition
Morphing tree monster sculpture with dead tree ‘body parts’ moved by festival participants
Nature Morte Iris Painting and Live Planting workshop
Zombie Ant Sculptures from Recycled Material demo
Native American Willow Structure workshop, bringing ‘dead’ branches back to life to create a living building
Zombie Cells Bioart workshop using microscopy to search and image living cells from dead tissue
It’s Alive! Resurrection Fern spore printing demonstration
Papier-mâché Brain Sculpture demonstration
Traiteur Medicinal Plant walk
Traditional Cane Basket Making
Spine-tingling Story Telling in French and English
DIY Costume workshop using recycled/up-cycled materials
Frankentastic Music
Traditional Cajun and Creole cooking using locally sourced ingredients
and, as always, Pumpkin Decorating, Mask-making, haunted scavenger hunt, and more.
This year, due to COVID-19 safety requirements, we ask that all attendees register for either the morning or afternoon session. Masks encouraged.
