Jean Lafitte Seafood Festival
April 12 -14, 2024
Visitors to the festival will enjoy live music, Louisiana food, swamp tours, kayak rentals, carnival rides and an art walk. The event space is adjacent to the town’s Wetland Trace, a boardwalk trail through a 41-acre cypress swamp nature preserve next to the Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve. Swamp tours will be offered, departing from the Wetland Trace. The festival will also include coastal non-profits offering information and demonstrations and a wine walk through the town’s Wetland Trace.
Located just off the beaten path of Jefferson Parish, the town of Jean Lafitte's Seafood Festival is worth the adventure. Just bring yourself and be prepared to have a good time—they will handle the rest.
