Set against the backdrop of the country's most magnificent waterway—if we do say so ourselves—Baton Rouge's new Ebb & Flow Festival, presented by the Arts Council of Greater Baton Rouge, seeks to reinvigorate the city's cultural relationship with the Mississippi. And they have a few ideas on how to do that: live music on multiple stages from the likes of Tab Benoit and Cameo, a Human Library presented by East Baton Rouge Parish Library, flamenco dancers, slam poets, history come to life with exhibitions from the West Baton Rouge Museum, a sculpture garden along the levee, a Kidd's Corner from the USS Kidd, an artists village, and much, much more.
