The 15 Best Small-Town Louisiana Festivals You’ve Never Heard Of

If there’s one thing that rings true for Louisianans, it’s that we like to have a good time. With more than 400 festivals in Louisiana, it’s no wonder we’re often called the Festival Capital of America. You name it, we have a festival for it. Even though some are more well-known than others, that doesn’t mean the smaller festivals are something you should pass up. In fact, sometimes it’s the smaller festivals that you find are your favorites! Here are some of our favorites.

*Because there were so many to choose from, we decided not to include festivals that have already happened this year. The festivals listed below are in chronological order.*

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! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:

And there you have it! Now that your entire year is planned out, which festivals are you planning on attending? Let us know in the comments below!
