Growing every year since 1992, Thibodeauxville’s arts and crafts booths spill along the streets of historic downtown Thibodaux every second Saturday of November. Browse or stop for a bite to eat at the locally owned shops and restaurants that fling open their doors to welcome you. There’s a food court that goes on for a city block on West 4th Street that serves lunch and delicious desserts made by local vendors.
There are plenty of activities for everyone at this arts, crafts and music festival. The Kids Corner on Green Street has hands-on activities, a petting zoo, face painting, bouncer slides and more. Vintage vehicles and corvettes line West 2nd Street for auto enthusiasts. Several stages of continuous live music feature local and regional musical artists. With several street stages, you can groove to rock in front of the Goose and Rene’s Bar, two favorite local bars, or Christian music on another corner.
And don’t forget to buy a duck! At the end of the day, stroll to the banks of Bayou Lafourche for the great Thibodeauxville Duck Race! Fifteen hundred rubber ducks are released into scenic Bayou Lafourche and if yours is the lucky ducky that wins the race, you win a monetary prize. Now, wouldn’t that be a great way to end the day!
What Cajun Daughters love about Thibodeauxville: The streets of downtown Thibodaux are closed off to vehicular traffic so you can visit locally owned shops and restaurants at your leisure. A bonus: There is no admission fee for this street festival.
