From the center of Arnaudville at the junction of bayous Teche and Fuselier to the 5,000-square-foot NUNU Arts and Culture Collective facility on La. 93, this event showcases the arts with an emphasis on the creative talent within and of Acadiana.
Born following the aftermath of hurricanes Katrina and Rita, Le Feu et l'Eau initially featured the work of local and displaced visual artists. Since then, the celebration has expanded to include a multitude of artistic disciplines encompassing a variety of genres.
During the day, Fire and Water events are ongoing both at NUNU's and within the town's center.
There are screenings of independent film, literary and poetry readings, culinary and art demonstrations; and of course - music. Lots and all kinds of music so bring your instrument and join in jams for the "shake your tail feathers" and get-up-and-dance music.
Traditional fires are ceremoniously set ablaze at dusk.
