New Iberia, La. --- The Shadows-on-the-Teche has made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s Farm Fest due to COVID-19 and concerns for the health of volunteers, staff and the community.
Over the last four years, Farm Fest has become a beloved family event and the quintessential kickoff to the weekend of fun and festivities of the Louisiana Sugar Cane Festival.
The Shadows would like to thank the public, sponsors, and volunteers, without whom this event would not be possible, for their ongoing support. They look forward to returning with more family fun, food, and music in 2021.
