GARYVILLE — The Garyville Timbermill Museum Association will hold its fourth annual Sings and Strings Jam Fest from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Sunday in the Garyville Historic District.

Music line-ups for festival venues, cook-offs, crafts and a run will fill the streets of Historic Garyville in an effort to raise money for the Garyville Timbermill Museum. Music, food, and festival lovers are invited to join the fun where no one meets a stranger.

The committee is excited to announce over 80 musicians and vocalists are already confirmed to serenade the district with live music on historic porches and venues.

A cook-off will be held at lunch where visitors can partake in tasting the zesty flavors of the community while perusing the streets filled with artwork and hand-made crafts.

Musicians who enjoy playing unplugged are invited to bring their instruments. Contact Peyton Falgoust at 985-233-0168 to confirm attendance.

The Cook-Off Contest is slated for 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.  Chefs willing to challenge their recipes are asked to contact Duffy Dottolo at 504-451-3927.

Boiled Crawfish will be served all day.

Local restaurants will sell specialty dishes after 2 p.m.

The crafts are open from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.
