The Saturday markets feature live music from local and regional performers, prepared foods and demo, produce, local meats and dairy, plants, herbs and much more.   The Sunset at the Landing concert series, which follows the Block Party schedule of March – October, is sponsored in part by the Covington Farmer’s Market.

Keep Covington Beautiful is sponsoring its annual Bogue Falaya River Sweep, a litter cleanup on the Bogue Falaya River, on Saturday, September 28th.

As much as eighty percent of all litter and debris in our oceans, rivers and lakes originates on land, carried there by wind and storm water run-off.  The rivers that define the city of Covington are essential to its unique character.  Join us to help keep our portion of this scenic river clean!
