ALWAYS HELD THE WEEKEND BEFORE LABOR DAY WEEKEND. The Gueydan Duck Festival is nationally known and listed on the Internet (in numerous places-and now with its own web address). It is so representative of a fact to the Cajun culture that it has been featured at the World's Fair in New Orleans and on the LPB series "Taste of Louisiana" with Chef John Folse.
The Festival is usually held the last full weekend in August. Since it does highlight the hunting heritage of the Acadiana region, the Duck Festival offers the public great entertainment with its Duck and Goose Calling Contest, Skeet Shooting, Dog Trials, Duck Dash, and Decoy Carving.
This is in addition to great food, nightly bands, Junior and Senior Queens pageants, a Grand Parade, Outdoor and Indoor Cooking Contest, and to top it all off, a thriling Carnival.
As with any event in Cajun Country, the Gueydan Duck Festival gives everyone an excuse to meet old friends and make new ones. This "joie de vivre" ensures that a great time is had by one and all! "Laissez les bon temps rouler... Let the good times roll!!"
