Downtown Franklin

We invite you to the 15th Annual Bayou Teche Black Bear Festival, April 17-18, 2020 in beautiful downtown Franklin.

The mission of the black bear festival is to educate the citizens of St. Mary Parish and the surrounding area about the Louisiana black bear, a species listed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service as "threatened" under the guidelines of the Endangered Species Act. The festival features all the activities associated with a typical Louisiana festival (music, food and good company!), but also includes field trips, educational exhibits and children's activities relating to bears and the many other natural resources found in south Louisiana.
