Embrace Our Joie de Vie

Festivals large and small, weekly music “jam” sessions, art exhibits, theatrical performances and town tours are just a few ways in which we celebrate life. And of course, with our mild climate, hunting and fishing, biking and camping are year-round activities made easy with our many wildlife management areas and scenic bayous and byways.

You’ll be amazed by the hundred-year-old oaks that shade our historic communities and grace the gardens that are lovinglytended by our residents. Efforts to retain that beauty are ongoing today with restoration projects and support of our local farmers’ markets.

Embrace Our History

St. Landry Parish, one of the oldest settlements in Louisiana, was established as an administrative territory by the French government in 1720. After the 1803 Louisiana Purchase this area became know as Imperial St. Landry Parish, named after an early bishop of Paris. With its dramatic history and diverse culture, this area of Acadiana boasts une différence (a difference) which few places in America can claim. The settlers over three centuries have produced the rich and colorful experience that is St. Landry Parish today. We are proud of our history that still heavily influences our daily lives. We delight in sharing our joie de vivre (joy of life).

Embrace Our Cusine

Here in St. Landry Parish eating is considered both a cultural and a recreational experience and great meals can be found at diners open since 1937, local gas stations that serve daily plate lunches, or fine dining in very unique settings.
