When the humidity starts to lower in Louisiana can you say that autumn – or fall as they say in the States – has officially arrived; the Saints are in the Superdome and the kids are back in school. Which means it’s time for Fall Festivals. Louisiana has some amazing festivals in the entire country. Here are best and most unique…
1. Red River Revel Arts Festival, Oct. 1-Oct. 8th Shreveport
This week long festival takes over Shreveport, attracting nationally recognized bands and stunning visual artists and craftsmen from across the region. It simply shouldn’t be missed.
2. Zwolle Tamale Festival, October 6th – 8th, Zwolle
This unique festival celebrates its 41st year in 2016 telling the history of the area, a long time crossroads in the colonial period, where Spanish colonists, French colonists and Native American tribes traded and influenced one another.
3. Louisiana Cotton Festival, Oct. 10th – Oct. 16th, Ville Platte
This celebration of what is one of the most important cash crops in Louisiana offers live music, carnival rides, and an annual pageant that always draws crowds.
4. Festivals Acadiens et Creoles, Oct. 13th -16th, Lafayette
If you’re tired of the crowds at Festival International in Lafayette each year, we also have Festivals Acadiens et Creoles, another free Lafayette festival where the amazing Cajun food is always flowing and there is some truly incredible southern music blasting all weekend.
5. Louisiana Gumbo Festival, October 14th-16th, Chackbay
You will fall in love with the delicious gumbo available at this awesome festival–but is there anything more adorable than a good old fashioned dance like this? This is the real deal Louisiana festival folks.
6. Washington Parish Free Fair, Oct. 19th-22nd, Franklinton
This family fair began in 1911 and is one of the largest free fairs in America—and it’s the second oldest in Louisiana. The annual 5k run and rodeo here are definitely highlights.
7. Blackpot Festival, October 28-29th, Lafayette
Come on down to Lafayette Halloween weekend to participate in this amazing delight for the senses. Teams come from around the state to participate in the cook off of all Louisiana favorites, not to mention all the camping, dancing, and just plain fun.

A national festival which brings in headliners like Arcade Fire, The Weeknd, and Tool for 2016, this New Orleans celebration of music is unlike any other in the state.
Giant Omelette Celebration, Nov 5th-6th, Abbeville
