A festival and parade highlighting local tradition, culture, and history marks as the pinnacle of Terrebonne Parish’s year-long bicentennial celebration.

The Terrebonne Bicentennial Festival and Parade will take place from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. on October 15 throughout the streets of Downtown Houma. The festival will include various elements highlighting “the Good Earth,” including music on three stages, as well as storytelling and performances by local cultural organizations. In addition, the Cultural Tent Area will showcase live demonstrations of wood carving and basket weaving, as well as display historical collections and information about our parish’s history.

Admission to the festival is free. Delicious Cajun cuisine, drinks, and merchandise from local businesses and organizations will be available for sale.

The parade route will travel from Town Hall along Barrow Street towards Main Street. It will turn left on Main Street until it reaches the Courthouse Square. The parade is set to feature vintage vehicles and costumes that celebrate our history.
