Fairs and Festivals

Let the good times roll! Or as we like to say in the bayou, “Laissez les bon temps rouler!” Life’s a party, and Bayou Lafourche is all about the celebration.

Kicking off the season with the incomparable Mardi Gras season, there are dozens of festivals celebrating everything from heritage to music to food, as we embrace the “joie de vivre” (joy of living) throughout the year.
