Feedback from a 2014 vendor:
"We are in many festivals throughout the year and the Baton Rouge Blues Festival can be a 'model' for how these types of events should be run! Your food vendor personnel were very friendly and willing to help out with anything, and continually checked with us throughout the day in case we needed any assistance. That is going above and beyond being helpful with the way that they were monitoring our needs!"
