    Eunice Courir de Mardi Gras

    The Eunice Courir de Mardi Gras (Fat Tuesday Run) dates back from when the town was first established in the late 19th century. The traditional rural Mardi Gras celebration is based on early begging rituals. Riders go from house to house soliciting “donations” of food items to culminate in a community-wide gumbo. The Courir was abandoned for a few years during World War II, but in 1946, a small band of riders revived the tradition. Today, the Eunice Courir de Mardi Gras has more than 2,000 participants (including both male and female) on the run, and it continues to increase each year. Registration is required for the adult and youth chicken runs. Find out more at more at eunice-la.com.

    Registration begins at 6am at the Northwest Community Center | Participants must be 18 or older

    33rd Annual World Championship Crawfish Étouffée Cook Off

    This event features professional and amateur cooks vying for the title of "World Champion." This has got to be one of the best ways to taste crawfish in Louisiana. Teams compete to see who can cook the best crawfish etouffee in three categories: Amateur, Professional and Club/Organization. Once the judges have their samples from the booths, the public can buy the crawfish etouffee directly from the participants. Vote for the People's Choice Award! 

    Also, enjoy live Cajun and zydeco music (starting at 10AM), plenty of dancing and, of course, tons of etouffee. There will also be arts and crafts, a petting zoo, pony rides, fun jumps, and more fun activities for the whole family! World Championship Crawfish Etouffee Cook-off is held the last Sunday in March every year, except when it conflicts with Easter.

    14th Annual Le Feu et l'Eau (Fire and Water) Rural Arts Celebration

    Born following the aftermath of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, Fire and Water featured signature floating fires and the work of visual artists with only a sampling of other artistic disciplines; however, over the last several years the event has expanded to become more of a celebration featuring a multitude of local artists, performers and cultural workers in a variety of disciplines and genres. Participate in cooking demos, and watch feature films. Hear live music, listen to poetry and shop local art vendors. Plus, don't miss the traditional peace march, honoring veterans to Bayou Warehouse, where the traditional fire is set ablaze upon Bayou Fusilier. 

    In 2016 the festival was moved from December to April and is now two days of festivities ending a week-long conference, Semaine de la Francophonie. Formerly known as La Semaine Francaise d'Arnaudville or French Week, this cultural economy conference emphasizes the use of Creative Placemaking with subjects such as tourism, environmental sustainability, economic and social development, government, education, and folklife traditions.
