Louisiana Travel : Starks Mayhaw Festival


Starks Mayhaw Festival

It’s mayhaw time in Starks!  Get you some good mayhaw jelly, mayhaw butter and mayhaw berries at the 19th annual Starks Mayhaw Festival this weekend.  And if you get there early on Saturday morning, they’ll be serving hot biscuits with homemade mayhaw jelly and fresh-churned butter.  Now that’s something to get up early for!

Some of the other events going on at this family-friendly festival are carnival rides, arts & crafts booths, an auction, talent contest, a jelly contest (of course), parade, delicious Southwest Louisiana food, and live entertainment including Top 10 Season 8 American Idol contestant Michael Sarver.
