Louisiana Sugar Cane Festival - Expired Event
New Iberia, LA 70560
|Description:||Harvest-time celebrations were once very common in many parts of the country, but nowhere are the harvest festivities more fun than at the 72nd Annual Louisiana Sugar Cane Festival, held annually throughout Iberia Parish!|
Each year our festival honors the sugar cane producers and processors in recognition of the benefits of the sugar industry and how it affects Louisiana and the nation. The festival celebrates the contributions of the sugar industry in 23 sugar producing parishes, which include approximately 27,000 hard working people and has an economic impact of about $2.2 billion. It's a sweet community effort that truly involves volunteers, honorees and members throughout the state.
The festival is always held in New Iberia every September and honors the cane growers, mill operators and others in the industry with ceremonies, parties, parades, royalty, exhibits, and dancing in the streets.
Savor the difference and sweeten your weekend at the Louisiana Sugar Cane Festival and Fair on September 25 - 29, 2013.
