Get caught playing around at our annual festivals.
No one does small town festivals better than St. Francisville and West Feliciana Parish. We celebrate it all from arts to camellias to hummingbirds to historical re-enactments. The annual Audubon Pilgrimage celebrates the 1820's when John James Audubon spent time here in the Felicianas. The Day the War Stopped tells the story of a time during the Civil War when weapons were laid down so that a Union officer could be buried in a Confederate churchyard. Christmas in the Country centers around the family with artists vending their creations and a parade featuring the man in the red suit himself.
