Jefferson Parish Holiday Events

Holidays in Jefferson Parish provide a wonderful opportunity to get together with friends and family and enjoy our family-friendly events, music festivals, celebrations and unique traditions throughout the year.

St. Patrick's Day parades and Easter egg hunts in the spring and spooky Halloween fests and haunted houses during the fall are very popular. During the summer, patriotic Fourth of July celebrations abound!

Winter in Jefferson Parish boasts gorgeous weather and crisp cool breezes. It is a wonderful time to visit! We always have something to celebrate down here and that is especially true during the holiday season. From festivals and cities of light to ballets and ice skating, Jefferson Parish is a great place to get in the holiday spirit!

The spectacle of Mardi Gras follows Christmas and with it comes magical parades and the annual Family Gras festival!
