The annual holiday event at Acadian Village, Noel Acadien au Village, is going to be held through December 23 this year.This Acadiana holiday tradition raises money to benefit persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities, and is a wonderful family outing year after year.

Every night from 5:30pm - 9:00 pm, weather permitting, there are over half a million lights, including the beautiful and historic homes that are on the grounds of Acadian Village. There will also be photos with Santa, carnival rides, local arts and crafts and food, a local talent show on December 3, and so much more, in this oh so Louisiana setting. All proceeds directly benefit LARC’s Acadian Village and the residential, vocational, and community supports and services at LARC.

Tickets are available in advance for $8 at any Acadiana Shop Rite location, or $10 at the gate. Children 4 and under are free, and active military members with ID are free as well.

Check out the schedule of entertainment and frequently asked questions. Parking is free, and the Knights of Columbus volunteer their services to help out on all 25 nights! Make sure you view the map and parking directions before you go, because there are a few changes for this huge event to run smoothly!
