This year the Patry features the following group of eclectic artists together with a crawfish boil, great food, wine and beer:

We Are Up and Running
As most people are aware, the website was down the last few weeks because of a technical problem with our host. We thank everyone who expressed genuine concern about the fate of the grids, but we should be back to normal in a few days. However, please be aware there will not be any other new updates before Friday afternoon. We appreciate everyone's patience. - Neil & Bart
