EVENTS IN NATCHITOCHES, LOUISIANA

Founded in 1714 by Louis Juchereau de St. Denis, Natchitoches (pronounced Nack-a-tish) is the original French Colony and oldest city in Louisiana. Home to the Cane River National Heritage Area, Natchitoches celebrates a vibrant blend of French, Spanish, African, Native American and Creole cultures.

The Cane River National Heritage Area encompasses the charming downtown Natchitoches National Historic Landmark District, Cane River Creole National Historical Park, as well as the Cane River National Heritage Trail, which is a Louisiana Scenic Byway that runs along Cane River Lake, and links to the Isle Brevelle Trail and El Camino Real de los Tejas National Historic Trail, with Longleaf Trail and Kisatchie National Forest on the outskirts.

Natchitoches retains its European flavor through its architecture, heritage and lifestyle and a full calendar of events. No matter what time of year you visit Natchitoches, you are bound to find a festival to celebrate! This historic city is just 275 miles from New Orleans, 255 miles from Dallas, and 290 miles from Little Rock.
