Arnaudville, “The Jewel on the Teche”, is located near the intersection of interstates 10 and 49, and just north of Lafayette—which is to say— in the belly of Acadiana. Arnaudville is one of the oldest towns in Louisiana and nearly four in 10 people here speak Cajun French at home. The lovely Bayou Teche intersects with Bayou Fuselier in Arnaudville, making the town a perfect locale for anyone also interested a swamp tour or two. Boudin sausage is standard local fare, as is etouffee. Arnaudville fetes this spicy shellfish (or chicken) and rice dish with an annual festival. On the musical front, the Cajun fiddle is associated with Arnaudville. It’s not unusual to hear four-string masters sawing away in spontaneous jam sessions. Arnaudville also supports a thriving arts community, centered in the old part of town. In fact, Arnaudville has become a haven for all types of artists, including musicians, dancers, writers, and chefs.

Visitors are welcome, and many come for their annual spring events Semaine de la Francophonie and Etouffee Festival. In the fall, Arnaudville attracts those interested in supporting Acadiana musical culture by attending the Al Berard Music Festival. Additionally, the town’s Deux Bayous Cultural District allows shoppers to purchase local art free from tax.

Arnaudville is the home to one the areas largest oil field support companies in International Snubbing Services, as well as one of the larger area concrete manufacturing facilities with Design Precast Concrete and Pipe. A growing presence in the field of southern breweries, Bayou Teche Brewery also calls Arnaudville home for its brewing operations. It has become a catalyst community for the Acadiana Area as a leader in the cultural economy.Learn more about the town or plan your trip here.
