LCBT Awards $67,500 to Support Festivals and Events Recovery

Louisiana’s Cajun Bayou Tourism Awards $67,500 to Support
Festivals and Events Recovery in Lafourche Parish

Raceland, Louisiana (April 12, 2021) – Tourism is an economic force that benefits the entire parish, and today Louisiana’s Cajun Bayou Tourism awarded $67,500 in grant funds to support the return and sustainability of festivals and events in Lafourche Parish.

The tourism office’s 2021 Festivals and Events Support Grant through the Tourism Investment Program (TIP) was created for this year to provide vital assistance to the Lafourche Parish festivals and events industry as it continues to recover from the hardships faced from the COVID-19 pandemic. This year’s special program was designed to provide funds to be used by organizations as they market, advertise and otherwise promote visitation to their festivals and stimulate growth of those events, which are held up and down Bayou Lafourche. Festivals and events are a top tourism draw for Louisiana’s Cajun Bayou, as they showcase the region’s history, culture, food and music to out-of-town guests, who will stay in the parish and help the local economy as part of the process.
