Celebrate Local Horticulture in Abbeville

When we think of sights and sounds in South Louisiana, most often what pops in our heads is food and music. It’s an inseparable combo in the land of jazz, gumbo, and crawfish – and it’s probably the main reason most festivals are named for the delicious rhythms and edibles the Bayou State has to offer.

But Louisiana’s location offers something more unique than the food and music, but just as pleasant on the eyes and nose. Sub-tropical climate, with plenty of sun and rain, gives Cajun country a real step-up when it comes to gardening and horticultural offerings.
