The Franklin Parish Catfish Festival is a community effort.
In addition to the committee of volunteers organizing the event each year, the festival requires cooperation from government agencies, law enforcement and the generous support of area businesses.
Major sponsors of the Catfish Festival for the past several years are Progressive Bank and the Franklin Parish Tourism Commission. Support was also received this year from the Louisiana Department of Culture, Recreation and Tourism.
Other sponsors include Franklin State Bank, Winnsboro State Bank, Diane Wroten-State Farm Insurance, White Ford-Lincoln-Mercury, Kaye's Foods, Gill First National Funeral Home, First South Farm Credit, Rudy and Ann McIntyre, Entergy and Wal-Mart.
Also acting as sponsors are Citizenís Progressive, the Winnsboro Three, Louisiana Land Bank, Delta Glass and Trim.
Support is also received from The Franklin Sun and KMAR radio station.
Supplementing security offered by the Winnsboro City Police and the Franklin Parish Sheriff's Office are volunteer lawmen furnished by the Northeast Louisiana Chiefs of Police.
