Thibodauxville Fall Festival Brings Old and New Together

View All Events

The Thibodauxville Fall Festival is a day-long street arts and crafts and music festival held the second Saturday of November each year in downtown Thibodaux.

A popular attraction is the reconstruction of a block of the old city, with 19th century-style cabins and decorations. Adults and children can learn about Thibodaux’s history from narrators in period costumes.

An estimated 15,000 people attend the festival each year. A petting zoo and pony rides are available, as well as food and crafts from more than 160 booths. The festival's food booths take up an entire block and offer everything from Cajun cuisine to traditional festival fare.

Thibodauxville Fall Festival attendees can sample creative culinary creations at a chili cook-off that allows serious and casual chefs to test out their favorite recipes. More than 25 teams typically compete for the prize.

A race of yellow rubber ducks, where the “racers” are coaxed along by water blasts from fire hoses, is held in Bayou Lafourche to add to the family fun and community spirit of this popular event.
