The 2017 Rougarou Fest queen will be selected during this year’s Rougarou Ball to be held 7 to 11 p.m. Saturday, May 6, 2017, at the Houma Municipal Auditorium, 880 Verret St., Houma.
Creative teams will present their queen contestant dressed in a “Swamp Thing” theme during the ball where judges will crown the 2017 Rougarou Fest Queen. Tickets for the ball are $75 per person with proceeds supporting the South Louisiana Wetlands Discovery Center.
There will be food, drinks, a live and silent auction, and live music. Guests are asked to wear their best Swamp Chic attire. It’s cocktail attire with a flair that only South Louisiana can bring.
The event welcomes special celebrity guest, Adrienne Barbeau, from the 80s classic film “Swamp Thing.” The Wetlands Discovery Center will also present the John W. Woodard Award to P.J. and Marv Marshal for their years of service to the preservation and restoration of coastal Louisiana through Restore the Earth Foundation.
