Now Accepting

2023 La Legends Fest Nominations

Deadline February 28, 2023

Honoring a Louisiana Legend is the centerpiece of the annual Louisiana Legends Festival. Our past recognized legends included Grammy Award winning Blues artist, Bobby Rush and international recognized orthopaedic surgeon, Dr. James R. Andrews. Both honorees were Claiborne Parish natives.

Nominations for the 2023 Louisiana Legend Honoree open February 1, 2023. The honoree is to be a distinguished citizen that has had a positive impact on the Parish, State, and/or Nation. This is a unique opportunity to recognize some of the very deserving people of our area.

The nominee can be of any genre of work or activity. The nominee does not have to have a connection to Claiborne Parish, but the Legends Council identifies that as a positive.

  • Anyone is eligible to submit a candidate for nomination

  • Nominations will close on February 28, 2023

  • All nominations will be submitted to the Louisiana Legends Festival Legends Council for voting

  • Finalist will be determined by the initial vote of the LLF Legends Council
