euniceEunice, LA is the “prairie” Cajun capital of Louisiana. The week here starts on Saturday mornings, with hot boudin sausage, coffee and the open Cajun jam session at Savoy’s Music Center. This 40-year-old tradition, where old hands play alongside up-and-comers, was started by a local accordion-maker and is still going strong. On Saturday evenings, the historic Liberty Theater broadcasts a live Cajun radio show and attendees can spend the night twirling on the dance floor. It makes sense that Eunice would also house the Cajun Music Hall of Fame and Museum. Here, greats like “Doc” Guidry and “Happy Fats” LeBlanc are commemorated, and the story of Cajun music is told. For the rest of the story, visit the Prairie Cajun Cultural Center, which is one of the few places you’ll find National Park Service rangers alongside Cajun chefs dishing up jambalaya. On any given weekend you can always find a beehive of activity at the Eunice Sports Complex as the host events for young women from throughout South Louisiana.

Eunice is home to the 6 time College World Series Champion College, LSU-E. Strategically located at the crossroads of the divided state Hwy 190 and Hwy 13 and adjacent to the artery UP Rail Line, Eunice sits in the heart of a robust agricultural area and houses one of the largest crawfish production operations with Riceland Crawfish. The Eunice area has always been a magnet for many large oil field services support companies and associated light manufacturing operations. Tanners Services, Sunland Construction, and Waveland Services are just of few of their key employers.
