Wolf Creek Arts Festival

Saturday, September 16, 2017, Members Deloris McFarland, and Justin Cotton, will have a table at the Wolf Creek Arts Festival, in Sikes Louisiana. They will have Cook Books, and Journals for sale, and membership applications. The events should start around 10am. Also, Sikes is small enough that if you get to the center of town, you should have no problem finding the event.

The Wolf Creek Festival is scheduled for September 16, 2017. The Festival is an effort to rejuvenate interest in the community with a variety of new events emphasizing the Sikes community spirit. Graduates of the now-consolidated Sikes High School, and former residents of the community, are invited to return for a day of remembrance and entertainment.

The Wolf Creek Guild was first organized in 1979, to focus on history of the Sikes community, recalls Nell Parker, one of the early leaders of the movement. After a couple of years of work and planning, the first Wolf Creek Festival was held in 1981, and enjoyed a run of several years with large attendance and a variety of events. Members of graduating classes from the Sikes school used the occasion to stage their own reunions, and members of old-time Sikes families drifted back home from nearby cities and states where they had migrated.

Oh, and in case you wondered--yes, there is a Wolf Creek. It's a small stream which crosses Catfish House Road which connects to Louisiana Highway 34 northwest of Sikes. Wolf Creek flows into Flat Creek, thence to . . . eventually, the Gulf of Mexico. But's that's another story.

A YouTuber, LA Hover, has an interesting video of last year’s Wolf Creek festival.
