Boucherie Festival Cancellation
The difficult decision was made to cancel the Balloons and Boucherie Festival this year. With so much unknown we thought it best to cancel in the interest of public health. We will be back and bigger than ever in 2021. Until then, we hope everyone stays safe and healthy!

Festival Date Announced!
The 2020 Boucherie Festival is being held September 18th and 19th at Lamar Dixon Expo Center. Just like our 2019 festival, The Boucherie Festival has partnered with Ascension Hot Air Balloon Festival to bring you "Balloons & Boucherie", an action-packed two day event. Join us on this September weekend for our Cracklin' and Jambalaya Contests, Live Music, Vendor Show, Carnival Rides, and of course, the Hot Air Balloons!
Our association's next meeting is Thursday, March 26 , 2020 and is open to the public. Feel free to join us and learn more about our organization and charitable endeavors. Check our Facebook page for specific meeting times and location.
Our mission includes serving our community and beyond by providing volunteer services and raising funds for humanitarian activities. The festival is our prime fundraiser to support the Louisiana Lions Eye Foundation and the Louisiana Lion’s Children’s Camp. In addition, this event provides resources which allow us to supply glasses and hearing aids to those in need in our community and to send handicapped children or children with juvenile diabetes to camp during the summer.
The Louisiana Lions Eye Foundation serves thousands of residents each year through eye exams, eyeglasses, surgeries, low vision services, eyeglass recycling and vision screenings. One of the chief programs of the Louisiana Lions Eye Foundation is Cubsight, where tens of thousands of pre-school aged children are screened every year.
