Louisiana is known for being home to people of many different cultures and backgrounds. Roberts Cove, Louisiana is no exception!

It is in our small community where we celebrate our rich German heritage during our annual festival held during the first weekend of October.https://www.robertscovegermanfest.com
Live entertainment, authentic German food, a large selection of German beer on tap, folklore demonstrations and children’s activities are just a few of the attractions scheduled for this year’s festival. Our clean and family friendly environment makes our festival a great place to visit! Young or old, our festival will leave you with memories
