It's great to report that an event is actually happening. The 84th annual International Rice Festival in Crowley is set for October 14-17, 2021 in the heart of the city.

The annual event is the oldest and largest agricultural festival in Louisiana and we couldn't be happier to get out and enjoy the festivities next month.

One of the highlights of the festival is the free music on the two stages. Below is the complete lineup for this year's International Rice Festival.

There are a few events we know about leading up to this year's Rice Festival including a Poker Run on Sept. 11, a Rice & Gravy Cook-Off on Sept. 18, and the Queen's Ball & Honoree Social on Sept. 25.
