The Cole Kickin' Music Festival is a three-day music festival to remember and honor Barry Eakin, Jr. and other area musicians and artists we have lost. The event is free for all ages* and includes local live music, food trucks, art and craft vendors, a live auction raffle and more. We will also celebrate Bayou Thunder Saloon's four-year anniversary.
What started as a benefit gig now boasts more than 20 bands from Shreveport and the surrounding Ark-La-Tex who contribute their time and talent for the event. Acts include Last Machine Operation, Tap Dead Sinner, Nuwma, Eddie and the Defiantz, Stoned Mages, Sylo, Old Flames, Merrows, Hollow Tree, Built for Speed, Optimus Prime, My Solemn Anchor, Ultra Riot and more.
