The sweetest time of the year is fast approaching with the Louisiana Sugar Cane Festival on the horizon! Join King Sucrose and Queen Sugar to celebrate the 78th Anniversary of the Festival in historic downtown New Iberia from September 26-29. As the state's largest sugarcane producer, Iberia Parish is a fitting host each fall to continue the lasting traditions of the Louisiana Sugar Cane Festival and Fair.
The festival, located along the Bayou Teche, is jam-packed with events and activities to guarantee a great time all-around. Enjoy parades, carnival rides, a car show and more. If you’re looking for a little competition, sign up to participate in the 5k run or the sugar cookery contest.
The smell of Cajun seasonings and spices wafting through the air will lead you straight to the Fais Do-Do, and the sound of live music from artists such as Dustin Sonnier and Chris Ardoin will have you dancing on your feet. Bring the kids and head over to the historic Shadows-on-the-Teche for the Farm Fest complete with a petting zoo, cookie decorating, a cupcake walk and more. This festival makes for the perfect family-friendly outing.
