In St. Landry Parish, accordions are cool, boudin is hot and history is not just in textbooks. Our events and festivals celebrate art, Cajun music, catfish, cracklins, etouffee, herbs, spices, yams, and zydeco. Annually, we number three cook-offs, more than a dozen festivals and cultural celebrations, six yard sales, numerous live music shows and trail rides. Our French heritage takes a front seat at major cultural events like La Semaine Francaise and Cajun Country Courir de Mardi Gras.
