THE NEW ACADIA TOURISM BRAND
THE PURPOSE OF OUR BRAND
Provide a warm welcome to visitors and potential businesses, with a wealth of things to do, to enlighten, enthrall and embrace them, so they return, tell others and potentially become a part of the vibrant landscape of Acadia.
In Acadia, you’ll savor an authentic experience of Louisiana’s Cajun Harvest Country. As the heartland of Acadiana, Acadia is the center of celebrated Louisiana food, music and culture. If you’re visiting Louisiana for the cuisine, you’re in the right place – we’ve been perfecting our famous Cajun recipes since 1886. Our rice fields serve double duty as crawfish ponds, and we share our harvest all over the world. You’ll experience the indigenous Louisiana sounds as your toe begins to tap at the first pull of the accordion bellows. From world-famous musicians who were born and raised here, to accordion makers and fiddle players who live and work here, rhythm runs throughout the land and into venues large and small. On festival stages, musicians get us moving as one in celebrations of harvest and community. Raise your spirits in our faith-filled communities while taking in beautiful, historic churches, and hearing stories of faith to inspire you along the way. If the outdoors are your calling, fishing, hunting and birding are part of the very fabric of our communities. From a bass boat on the Mermentau River to a seat in a duck blind – you’ll be immersed in an outdoor adventure like nowhere else. The people of Acadia will surely give you memories to cherish for a lifetime as they invite you into our cities, towns and villages to shop, dine, dance, and explore. The bounty of Louisiana’s Cajun Harvest is ready to welcome you.
