You’ll Absolutely Love This One-Of-A-Kind Pirate Festival In Louisiana

Who doesn’t love a festival? Louisiana has hundreds of festivals. It’s one of the things we do best. They’re a great way to support local vendors, experience live music, get outside, and have some fun. One of Louisiana’s largest festivals is the Contraband Days Festival, which takes place on the first two weekends in May. More than 100,000 people attend the oldest festival in Lake Charles, and we can see why!

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:

The Contraband Days Festival is May 4-7 this year and is located at 900 Lake Shore Dr, Lake Charles, Louisiana 70601.
