Jefferson Convention & Visitors Bureau, Inc.
Jefferson Parish, nestled next to our famous neighbor New Orleans, is home to the Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport and conveniently located off I-10. Our diverse community is comprised of modern high rises, historic homes, Mississippi River views, adventurous attractions and expansive green spaces.
Jefferson is a premier sporting events destination for mid-size tournaments and events offering two multi-purpose facilities accommodating regional, national and international athletic events. The Alario Center is a sports and multi-purpose venue located on the Westbank of the Metro New Orleans area. Watch their video here. The Pontchartrain Center, on the Eastbank, enhances the excitement and exuberance of a broad spectrum of events at a fraction of the cost. Check out a video of the facility here.
We are home to the New Orleans Saints and New Orleans Pelicans training facilities as well as the New Orleans Baby Cakes AAA baseball club and the Shrine on Airline stadium. New to Jefferson is the Major League Rugby Club, Nola Gold.
A variety of parks, recreational venues and coastal waterways add to the diversity of the region allowing professional fishing rodeos and tournaments. For soccer, basketball, bowling, wrestling, sand volleyball and more, Jefferson Parish is the sport destination!
