Kenner's Heritage Park Christmas Village


Unfortunately, due to damage caused by Hurricane Ida, Heritage Park will not be having their annual Christmas Village  & Light Display this year. 

Each year in November and December, the streets and buildings in Rivertown from the railroad tracks to the river are adorned with dazzling lights and displays. The festivities culminate in Kenner's Heritage Park located at the center of the district and open every day and evening. There, visitors can wander through and view the festival displays, shop local food and craft vendors, find a unique gift, take a photo with Santa or catch a song or dance performance by community churches and school groups.  Children revel in the sudsy "snow" that blankets the park throughout the evening and a special holiday-themed musical laser light show plays in the Planetarium theater right across the street.  You're sure to catch some holiday cheer in Rivertown.​

Traditionally, the lights and decorations in Rivertown can be enjoyed nightly beginning in late November and running through the month of December. 

Vendors, activities, and performances in the Christmas Village are planned every Friday and Saturday evening. Admission and parking are free.

Address: 2015 Fourth Street, Kenner, LA
