Events in Jeff Davis Parish

Festival season in Louisiana lasts all year. We always have something to celebrate. Our rural Mardi Gras is quite a treat for visitors. It is a very different experience from the parades and balls that dominate the “city” Mardi Gras. Traditional dress, gumbo, music.. It’s definitely one of a kind! The “Yellow Rails and Rice Festival” is held in the fall, and is a one of a kind birding opportunity to see the now famous birds, only found in second crop rice fields. Another great festival is the “Stearman Fly In”, held at the Jennings airport in the fall. This brings in WWII bi-wing planes from all over the country. Our Parish is also the host of the Cajun Squeezebox Shootout, held at the historical Strand Theatre in downtown Jennings at high noon the Saturday before Mardi Gras. This one of a kind accordion competition packs the Strand with competitors of all ages.
