What's New at  ROUGE?

By popular demand, Rouge et Blanc returns to downtown Lake Charles on Saturday, October 12, 2019. Southwest Louisiana’s premier wine & food festival, a sell-out event for 13 years running, is also moving to a cooler 4:00-8:00 p.m., in the shade of the historic 1911 City Hall building at 1001 Ryan Street. 

Held on the campus of McNeese State University since 2014, Rouge et Blanc gets back to its roots this year to showcase the Lake Area’s vibrant downtown cultural center, and, going forward, will alternate between the McNeese campus and the downtown area.

Tickets go on sale to the public at 9:00 a.m., Friday, August 16 at Last year’s online ticket sales went off without a hitch, but a ticket window will be maintained at the box office in the lobby of the historic F.G. Bulber Auditorium at McNeese for any patrons who prefer to purchase in person.  

As the flagship fundraiser for Banners at McNeese, Rouge et Blanc allows for funding to the organization’s annual Cultural Series in March and April, as well as off-season educational programming through Banners Engages.
