A great time to experience Natchitoches is during one of our annual festivals:
The Cane River Zydeco Festival & Poker Run offers a chance to experience Natchitoches' musical heritage every August. Concerts take place in the downtown historic district.
In October, American Indian heritage is celebrated during the Adai Caddo Indian Nation's Annual Pow Wow, which showcases Native American heritage through music, dance, arts and crafts, and food.
Every November and December, the Christmas Festival of Lights takes over Natchitoches' historic district. Parades, Pageants, a 5K Run/Walk, and breathtaking evening fireworks shows accompanied with music and a laser show are a few of the many staples of Natchitoches' most prominent festival.
