Fête-Dieu du Teche | August 15

Fete Du Teche

For those in the Roman Catholic Church, August 15 is the Feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, and for those who trace their roots to the Acadians, it is Acadian Day. In celebration of these special occasions, Fête-Dieu du Teche, a Eucharistic procession, will take place along Bayou Teche from Leonville to St. Martinville. Fifty boats will disembark at 9:30 am, retracing the steps of Acadian ancestors along Bayou Teche. The 40-mile procession will make several stops along the way for a recitation of the Rosary and Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament. For a complete timeline of events, click here.
