Audubon Under the Oaks Gala

April 2

The celebration of the bicentennial of Audubon’s arrival to the Felicianas continues from the first-annual symposium into this elegant evening of local cuisine and refreshments. All on the grounds of Oakley House, where Audubon painted thirty-two of his Birds of America. James Linden Hogg, a multi-instrumentalist, singer, and songwriter of American and Celtic Folk music, along with his father Jim, will perform vintage music strolling among the guests. Delicious Louisiana cuisine, prepared by area chefs and talented local cooks, will be served. Attendees, who are encouraged to dress in Jane Austen-period costumes, will be able to view rooms in Oakley House, including the room in which John James Audubon resided in 1821. John Flippen, dressed in Audubon attire, will share information about this great artist and ornithologist. Enjoy beautiful music, bites, and lovely company under the majestic live oaks. 4 pm–7 pm. $75. Tickets available at bontempstix.com.
