To recognize Loyola's founding fathers and close out the year-long centennial commemoration - we're celebrating New Orelans style - with a festival!

Founders Fest - exclusively for the Loyola community - will feature preview performances by musical groups scheduled to perform at Jazz Fest 2013 and food booths serving some of the Fest's favorite fare!  And it's all FREE for Loyola students, faculty and staff.

Musical acts include the Stooges Brass Band, Lyle Henderson and Emmanu-EL, the Loyola University Jazz Band , John Rankin,  and a second-line finale complete with Mardi Gras Indians.

The menu features the always-popular Crawfish Monica, Natchitoches Meat Pies, Jama Jama, Hush Puppies, Brocato's Lemon Ice and Centennial birthday cake.

This is also your last chance to scoop up Centennial souvenirs - which will be given away at the Alumni tent.
