DENHAM SPRINGS, La. (The Livingston Parish News) – After a one-year hiatus, the Denham Springs Fair is coming back.

The Fifth Annual Denham Springs Fair, presented by Jarreau Entertainment, is scheduled to run April 1-4 at South Park, the organizer announced via social media.

Last year’s fair was cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic.

“The state has approved us to host the next Denham Springs Fair!” organizer Tony Jarreau wrote on his Facebook page. “The final flyer will be completed before the end of the week, but I could not wait any longer to let all of you know!

“We have live music, pictures with the Easter Bunny, and you know what’s the best part? The live music and Easter Bunny pics are FREE thanks to our sponsors.”

The local fair is the brainchild of Jarreau and Greg Brooks, two friends who graduated from Walker High before later teaming up to put on the first Denham Springs Fair in 2016. The fair has attracted thousands in its first four years, bringing people from Livingston Parish and beyond.

This year, visitors will be treated to live music provided by Bag of Donuts on Friday, April 2, followed by Parish County Line on Saturday, April 3. There will also be free photo opportunities with the Easter bunny on Saturday and Sunday, April 3-4.
