to the official home of the Louisiana Shrimp & Petroleum Festival.
Please join us for our 78th annual festival to be held
August 29-September 2, 2013, in picturesque
downtown Morgan City, Louisiana. Deep in the heart of Cajun Country, every Labor Day Weekend, tens of thousands of people
celebrate at Louisiana's oldest chartered harvest festival.
The festival has been honoring those who have worked
tirelessly through rain and shine...and sometimes even
hurricanes, to provide the area's economic lifeblood for
over half a century. The festival also emphasizes the
unique way in which these two seemingly different industries
work hand-in-hand culturally and environmentally in this
area of the "Cajun Coast." The event is free and has grown
to become one of the country's premiere festivals. There's
plenty of fun for "kids" of all ages and lots to see, hear,
do and eat! The festival is truly a feast for ALL senses
and according toTime Magazine, "...one of the
best, most unusual, the most down-home, the most moving and
the most fun the Country has to offer..."
Shrimp & Petroleum Festival, the state's oldest chartered harvest
festival, garnered the award of 2011 Festival of the Year as well as Best Cap
Open Marketing in Division III.
