North Gate Fest 2016

North Gate Music and Arts Fest 2016 will be held on historic Chimes St. at the gates of LSU on October 21, 2016, from 4 – 11 PM. We are busy working on all of the details. This will be our eleventh North Gate Fest and our best and biggest one yet.

The Fest will feature music from amazing local bands, beautiful and inspiring artwork created by talented local artists, delicious food from neighborhood restaurants, and a busy beer booth, all set on a dazzlingly illuminated Chimes St. KLSU and WHYR will participate in our event as will merchants all along Chimes St and from around the neighborhood. We will keep you up to date on the bands who will perform this year and on all of the other entertainment that will be provided.

Check back with us here and on our North Gate Merchants Association Facebook page for updates. Mark your calendars and plan to attend. Tell your friends and family. This will be another memorable night as we celebrate the history and uniqueness of the North Gates community.

Featured Merchant:

You work all day, pay bills, eat salads and do all that other grown-up stuff; your “fun” shouldn’t be limited to trendy bars with long lines, dress codes and drinks you can’t pronounce.

Inner child, meet BARCADIA: ’50’s pin-up girls on the walls, The Cure playing in the background, LIFE-SIZE JENGA on the patio, and an entire wall of ‘80s ARCADE GAMES for a quarter. Oh wait…SKEEBALL machines, 5′ tall CONNECT FOUR, AIR HOCKEY, POP-A-SHOT, aaaaaand lest we forget …A Multitude of CRAFT BEERS on tap.

Our waitstaff is as friendly as pecan-pie, and check out our face-melting, award winning Curbside gourmet burgers, along with tasty apps, salad and sandwiches. Only thing missing is a nap-time towel … because you may not want to leave this place.
