By now, you’ve undoubtedly seen the brightly colored branding for 225 Fest all over social media, it immediately caught our attention, and he had to learn more.

225 Fest – Celebrating Baton Rouge Culture
“We’re on an ambitious mission to defy sterotypes, data points, and rankings that don’t tell the full story of what it means to love Baton Rouge. Baton Rouge has historically meant BE RESILIENT.
