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 as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!
