Flea Fest Starts Hopping This Weekend In Lake Charles
The fun and kitschy country fair-like festival that features nearly four covered acres of anything and everything hops back into Lake Charles.
Billed as “a bargain hunter’s dream”, the semi-annual flea market event has grown dramatically since its 2013 inaugural show to become one of the preeminent stops on the often tight-knit vendor circuit, drawing vendors from multiple states selling a myriad of unique merchandise. The upcoming show is expected to be the biggest yet, featuring over 300 vendors and a virtual drove of frenzied shoppers.
Boasting vendors of all types, Flea Fest’s offerings include antiques, retro & vintage, handcrafted items, toys, collectibles, clothes, art work, comic books, up-cycled furniture and décor, gifts, plants, handmade jewelry, crafts, a farmer’s market, adoptable pets, and much more. In addition to the variety of merchandise vendors, Flea Fest will also include a virtual grab bag of wares from locals holding their garage sales at the festival.
A true family-friendly event, Flea Fest features a petting zoo, face painting, and pony rides to entertain the kiddies. And a live DJ spins classic rock tunes to keep the good vibes going. Topping off the shopping, weary shoppers can enjoy a smorgasbord of good eats, from South Louisiana favorites to traditional deep fried festival goodies offered by food vendors in the Flea Fest Diner.
Flea Fest is set for 9am - 5pm Saturday & Sunday in the Burton Complex Event Barn, located on the South side of Burton Coliseum. Adult tickets are $5, with the exception of Saturday from 8am - 9am (The “Early Bird Power Hour) when ticket prices are $10. Kids 12 & under are admitted free at all times. Tickets are only available at the gate, cash only.
The venue is entirely covered so the event will go on rain or shine! More details can be found at by clicking here!
