Creole Heritage Center will host Open House Thursday


NATCHITOCHES – The Creole Heritage Center at Northwestern State University will host an open house from 1-6 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 8 in Kyser Hall Room 116.  Guests are invited enjoy refreshments, tour the Center and learn more about the 2019 Creole Heritage Celebration that will take place Sept. 27-28 at NSU.


The Creole Heritage Center was established to promote and preserve Creole Culture.  Although its initial focus was the Creole community of Cane River, the Center’s scope has broadened to include the entire state of Louisiana and Creole colonies throughout the world.


The upcoming Creole Heritage Celebration is themed “Let Your Legacy Live On” and will include a fun run/walk, panel discussions, a zydeco reception and dance, exhibits, vendors, tours and a tribute to Clementine Hunter.  Television and film actor Robert Richard will be the featured guest. Guests who attend the Aug. 8 open house will be able to pick up a schedule and register for events that will take place Sept. 27-28.
