Each of the Junior League Market's events help the Junior League of Shreveport-Bossier carry out projects that serve at-risk women and children, from playing bingo with hospitalized kids to increasing community awareness about domestic violence. The community especially rallies together during the Shopping for a Cause events at the Shreveport Convention Center, where up to 140 merchants—including new faces and favorite sellers from years past—gather to sell their wares in one place. At the Girls’ Night Out event, Mike's Light & Sound plays music to set the mood as ladies sip drinks or nibble hors d'oeuvres and desserts, including treats from Woo Hoo Whoopies and Bistro Byronz. The event also includes door prizes and shopping at the market.
Kids can get involved through the Breakfast with the Bunnies event, where Barnes Portraiture snaps shots of children forging telepathic connections with live bunnies. Meanwhile, families can sit down to breakfast from Monsour's before they head into the market to peruse the booths.

Now in its 63rd season, Shreveport Opera delights theatergoers with classic operas rendered in sumptuous visual and euphonic hues. The Merry Widow weaves a tale of frustrated love and political intrigue in fin de siècle Paris. The plot follows the diplomats of a tiny European principality as they strive to convince a wealthy widow to keep her fortune in the country by marrying one of their own. Adulterous flirtations and farcical misunderstandings spice up mercenary machinations, all set to a catchy score by Austrian composer Franz Lehár. Balcony-level seating ensures unobstructedly elevated sightlines and prevents distraction from cheapskate rabbits trying to burrow in without a ticket.

Designed in a collaborative effort between PGA Tour pro and 1992 Masters champion Fred Couples and renowned course architect Gene Bates, The Golf Club at StoneBridge’s 18-hole, par 72 course careens through 6,954 yards of towering oaks, small lakes, and scenic wetlands. Twosomes can begin the day by testing their mettle and irons at the club’s driving range, where practice balls willfully turn themselves into ballistic agents in the war on errant swings and caddies who suggest wearing argyle with plaid. With water hazards coming in play on 15 holes, players must be judicious in their course management and precise in their club selection, lest they pay fealty to the subaquatic despots with a one-stroke penalty. After the round, golfers can settle stymied competitions with a sandwich-eating competition or a contest to see who can more quickly transform their draft beer into a serviceable ball washer.
