At 225Fest, we have an ambitious mission to celebrate culture in the capital region and inspire Baton Rougean's to invest in the future of our city.
225Fest, the premier celebration of Baton Rouge culture, emerged from the annual 225Day, a social media phenomenon that celebrated the food, music, memes, and memories associated with the iconic Baton Rouge area code, 225. In 2022, 225Fest Founder Myra N. Richardson united various leaders and organizations to champion culture in the capital region, aiming to boost morale and reshape the narrative about the beloved city.
The Inaugural 225Fest in 2023 marked the largest festival celebrating culture in the capital region, attracting over 14,000 attendees to Downtown Baton Rouge. The street festival featured food trucks, kids' activities, an art walk, health fair, and live performances. As we eagerly anticipate the next edition, we're committed to elevating the celebration to new heights!
Our team is made up of passionate and dedicated individuals who work tirelessly to make sure every aspect of the event runs smoothly. We are committed to providing the best possible experience for our attendees and ensuring that 225Fest is a success every year.
225Fest is a free festival that would not be possible without the generous contributions of our sponsors who are committed to celebrating culture in the capital region!
