Acadia, Louisiana’s Cajun Harvest Country celebrates life every day, but especially during festivals and events throughout the year. From the bounty of actual harvests, like the rice festival and frog festival, to our musical heritage and cultural heritage like the original Cajun Mardi Gras, the Courir du Mardi Gras, (running of the Mardi Gras), check the online calendar and plan your visit during an event.
