Orgainzers invite everyone to come enjoy the unique culture of Grand Coteau. Enjoy the festival and take a self-guided tour around the town of Grand Coteau, passing by: St. Ignatius School, the St. Peter Claver complex, the Schools of the Sacred Heart, St. Charles Church, and cemetery. This picturesque cemetery, with ancient Live Oaks and Spanish Moss, is the final resting place of the first Black Mayor of St. Landry Parish, the woman the St. Charles church bell was named after, confederate soldiers, and many renowned Jesuit priests.
