Family fun for everyone!

The Slidell Heritage Festival is going to be music by Witness and a Fireworks show in 2021

Plans have changed.  See update below:

After the year that we have all suffered through, the Slidell Heritage Festival has decided to open the park for our Independence Day Celebration on July 3 for FREE! We believe that this will be a great time for the community to come back together and celebrate our beautiful nation! With that being said, this year’s festival will not look the same.

  • The gates will open at 6 pm
  • The band Witness will take the stage at 7:30 pm
  • We will have food trucks and beverages available for purchase
  • Fireworks will start at 9 pm

This event is hosted by the Rotary Club of Slidell, the Rotary Club of Slidell Northshore in conjunction with the City of Slidell. ALL PROCEEDS from this event goes back into the community. Over the last 20 years, over $900,000 has been donated to local charities. We appreciate our sponsors and there will be a VIP area for them this year since we are having free admission. Please note that the park will be closed after the fireworks show. We look forward to seeing you there! There will be donation sites so that if you would like to support the charities, you can donate.

Thank you, and God Bless!

Our Story

The Slidell Heritage Festival will be celebrating its 23rd anniversary this year. The Heritage Festival provides a full day of family fun here in Slidell’s Heritage Park.  It is a great time and it’s all done while raising funds for local charities. We celebrate heritage and independence every 4th of July weekend the best way we know how, with those we love.   Music, drinks, great food.  What a day!

There is something for everyone including; awesome food options, sensational music/entertainment,  and a fantastic fireworks display.

Every year, the Slidell Heritage Festival raises funds for a new set of local charities which are carefully selected by her board.

Having raised and distributed nearly $1,000,000 since its inception in the 1990’s we would love to see you and yours at the festival this year.

This year the festival will consist of music by Witness at 7pm and a  fireworks show only, the park will be opened to the public at 6pm and will close after the fireworks display. 

The Slidell Heritage Festival has 13 board members. Our board handles all aspects of the festival from vendors and entertainments to live music and the overall operations of the event.

Presenters of the Slidell Heritage Festival are Rotary Club of Slidell, and Rotary Club of Slidell Northshore, The New Orleans Advocate/St. Tammany Farmer, and the City of Slidell.
