Louisiana Festivals & Fairs

Add a Link

Colorful, fascinating, fun and plentiful: all of these words apply when you are talking about Louisiana's more than 400 annual fairs and festivals. From north to south, from east to west, Louisiana likes to celebrate and, thanks to it's exciting cultural and historic heritage as well as it's bountiful scenic beauty, there is always a reason to start cooking, playing and dancing.
    Mardi Gras is Louisiana's most famous celebration, a statewide party unrivaled anywhere in this country. The Mardi Gras season begins on January 6 the Twelfth Night Feast of the Epiphany and ends on "Fat Tuesday" (Mardi Gras day), which is always set to occur 46 days before Easter.
    But Mardi Gras is only one of Louisiana's big festivals. In spring, you'll celebrate the pirate Jean Lafitte and the state's link to international French cultures. In summer, many towns and cities in South Louisiana celebrate Bastille Day, commemorating the beginning of the French Revolution. Fishing rodeos are another mainstay of the summer celebration calendar.

Statewide, Louisiana's fertile delta soil produces abundant crops and they celebrate sugar cane, rice, strawberries, peaches, corn and soybeans. Zydeco and jazz, country, bluegrass, gospel and blues: Louisiana's music inspires festivals too and they're some of the biggest.
    Food? Louisiana celebrates that every day, but they also like to have festivals for boudin, jambalaya, crawfish and many more. Fall brings a host of harvest festivals including celebrations of the shrimp and alligator harvests. And in December, you'll discover a magnificent month of unique traditions including bonfires on the levee. Treat yourself to the rich blend of cultural heritages that make Christmas in Louisiana incomparable.
    So any time of year you're here, bring your appetite, ears, feet and curiosity. Louisiana will give you a "good time feeling" you can only find at Louisiana's famous fairs and festivals.

Zfest is sponsored by the Zachary Chamber of Commerce. Last year, Zfest attracted crowds of over 15,000 and we expect to surpass this number for Zfest this year! Families can enjoy arts and crafts booths, games, carnival rides, food, entertainment, and lots more! We hope to see you there.
