By definition, “Ebb and Flow” are two phases of the tide or any similar movement of water. The ebb is the outgoing phase, when the tide drains away from the shore; and the flow is the incoming phase when water rises again. 

The Ebb:  Baton Rouge has positioned itself as a hub from which government, business, education, and culture reach out to the edges of the State.  Its key location on the Mississippi River and its role as the innermost international port supports commerce that flows to other ports nationally and worldwide. 

The Flow:  This festival brings all that flows outward from Baton Rouge back for a celebration of innovation, the arts, and community back to the Capital City, raising awareness of the great quality of life and plethora of opportunities that move in and through Baton Rouge.
