Situated on the banks of the Ouachita River just north of Monroe, Louisiana, in the heart of the north delta lies a barn where people from all ages and walks of life come together to celebrate their distinctive culture. The North Delta Ramble is a series of barn parties whereby each event has a distinguished chef, band, and visual artist, who all come together to create the perfect "gumbo" of a party. Through food, music, and art, we are able to break barriers and bring people together to enjoy one thing we all have in common --- LIFE.
