The Louisiana Fur and Wildlife Festival
January 13, 2018
The 60th Annual Louisiana Fur and Wildlife Festival highlights all the local, natural resource industries in the area. The festival caters to all ages and interests. Features parades, Gumbo Cook-off, and pageants, also a 5k and 1-Mile Run/Walk. There will also be dances, Cajun music, exhibits and a carnival complete with amusement rides. And don’t forget about the unique contests like duck and goose calling, trap setting, nutria and muskrat skinning. Also, oyster shucking and skeet shooting. The dog trials are always a favorite among hunters! These contests and more make this a memorable experience for the whole family. Plus, a reason why people keep coming back to Southwest Louisiana’s, “oldest and coldest” festival.
Proceeds from the festival benefit the Cameron Parish Junior Livestock Program. As well as, a valedictorian scholarship program for the high schools located in Cameron Parish.
The festival will be held on the fairgrounds in downtown Cameron, LA (located at the former Pat’s of Cameron, 513 Marshall Street).
