Join us for a morning run through the historic streets of Thibodaux as we kick-off our annual Thibodeauxville Fall Festival.
We will host a 5k Run/Walk and Fun Run. The run will begin and end in Historic Downtown Thibodaux and will take you on a scenic route through some of our historic neighborhoods and through our City Park (Peltier Park).
Thibodeauxville originated in 1992 in an effort to reacquaint the community with Thibodaux’s beautiful historic downtown area. Since its inception, Thibodeauxville has grown from 13 arts, crafts, and food vendors and a few hundred festival goers to 180 vendors and 15,000 visitors!
The Southeast Tourism Society recognized Thibodeauxville 2011 as a “Top 20” Event, making the festival eligible to be nominated for the “Shining Example” award, which honors the #1 festival in the Southeastern United States – Thibodeauxville indeed received this most prestigious award as well!
The arts, crafts, and music festival is held on the second Saturday of November each year and attracts visitors from as far away as Florida.
In addition to the original arts and crafts and delicious Cajun food, Thibodeauxville now features several stages of continuous live musical entertainment. Local entertainers are featured as well as regionally known musical artists. Local residents as well as thousands of visitors to the city attend the festival. There is no admission fee.
The festival opens at 8:30 a.m. and ends at 5:00 p.m. Participants enjoy a variety of activities for the entire family, including our famous “Thibodeauxville Duck Race” in beautiful Bayou Lafourche and a car show featuring hot rods, trucks, antique vehicles, and more. Plan to participate in Thibodeauxville Fall Festival on Saturday, November 14, 2015…just in time for bringing in the holiday season. For more information, please contact [email protected]
