The 39th Annual

TASTE of Shreveport-Bossier: A Festival of Food & Art     

Thursday, September 24, 2020

Shreveport Convention Center – NEW LOCATION

Check back here for more information about #TASTEsb20 progress as we move closer to September.

Holy Angels is committed to the health and safety of our residents, staff, and community of supporters. We are very closely monitoring the recommendations of the Louisiana Department of Health (LDH) and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) regarding mass gatherings and large community events. As we adjust to life with COVID-19 in our community, we must make plans that allow us to practice social responsibility while continuing to generate financial support for our mission. We also take very seriously our duty to our community partners, many of whom are experiencing hardship as a result of the Stay at Home Order.

Holy Angels’ signature annual fundraiser, TASTE of Shreveport-Bossier, has been an opportunity for local restaurants to showcase their culinary talent and for local businesses to gain valuable exposure by having goods and services featured in the very popular silent auction. Due to the dependence of this event on the generosity of those (local restaurants and small businesses) which have been hit hardest by the Stay at Home Order, we will be altering the way we deliver TASTE 2020. Our committee is hard at work developing options that do not require asking for in-kind donations from local businesses and restaurants. We are determined to find ways to support those who have been long-time supporters of us through this.

 Please continue to hold Thursday, September 24, 2020, on your calendars and stay tuned to emails, social media, and our website for more information on TASTE 2020!  

Taste 30+ vendors in one place! 

The Foodie Experience

From classic Louisiana staples like jambalaya to authentic Mexican delights, TASTE boasts more than 30 local restaurants and chefs under one roof!  Your ticket or sponsorship allows you to taste as many delights as you like, including beer and wine samples. A cash bar is also available.

Bid on silent auction items!

Silent Auction

Place bids from your cell phone or any mobile device to win gourmet gift baskets, jewelry and more!  Community artists create pieces especially for the TASTE auction, and our Angel Artists create more than 100 items in AngelWorks Enterprises for bidding. Register for mobile bidding by texting HOLYTASTE to 52182

Groove to the sounds of WINDSTORM!

Dance Party

WINDSTORM will keep the party going all evening so you can dance the night away! During WINDSTORM’s intersessions, the Holy Angels Choir and the Holy Angels Talent Show winners will take the stage! Between all of the tasty treats and convenient mobile bidding, your feet won’t be able to stay still during this dance party!

We couldn’t do it without volunteers!


Event Volunteers are needed for multiple positions. Volunteers are asked to work in shifts so that they may also have time to enjoy the event! For any questions, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator, Alex Einerson, at aeinerson@laholyangels.org or 318-629-1734.

Have fun while giving back to Holy Angels!

All auction and event proceeds benefit Holy Angels with approximately 86 cents of every dollar going directly toward client care.

Questions? Contact our Events Coordinator, Kelley Matkins, at 318-629-1711 or kmatkins@laholyangels.org.
