Since its humble beginning in 1911 in a local livery stable, this county/parish fair has steadily grown bigger and better each successive year. Today, based upon attendance records, it is believed to be the largest county/parish free fair in the USA. It is the second oldest Parish Fair in Louisiana.
It is a family fair. They come from all
over the country to enjoy the wholesome virtues characterized by Wiley
Wit and imagination cemented with a strong enthusiasm, cooperation and
genuine concern for the cultural, educational and economic advancement
of the parish.
We enjoyed it once again this year.
