A new festival is coming to the Northshore this year. Covington, LA is set to host the Inaugural St Tammany Hamburger Festival bringing a renewed take on festivals in Southeast Louisiana.
Families and friends alike in St. Tammany Parish will feel proud to have this festival in their home state and that is the hope of Team of 20 Productions. Founded in Louisiana, Team of Twenty Productions, LLC is bringing their prevalent experience in festival productions on to the Northshore.
Past projects include music, international, rice and even frog festivals attended by many across the state of Louisiana.
“Bringing something innovative and different to the community is a great way for everyone to come together from all walks of life.” said Joe Freeman, Vice President of Team of Twenty Productions, owner. “I’m excited to do this for this remarkable parish!”
