It’s time for Mardi Gras 2024! The Lafourche Education Foundation is excited to announced their 2nd Annual Bayou King Cake Festival.
The Bayou King Cake Festival will be held in Downtown Thibodaux on Saturday, January 27, 2024 from 11:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. Attendees will be able to taste delicious king cakes from local bakeries and vendors, watch the children’s wagon parade, listen to live music by Souled Out and We & Mrs. Jones, and toast the start of Mardi Gras with Thibodaux Mardi Gras Krewe Royalty.
The 2024 festival will feature many improvements including a larger area, an improved ticketing and entry system for the ease of those in attendance, and a children’s activity corner.
The Bayou King Cake Festival’s proceeds will support Lafourche Parish Public Schools and teachers, and is hosted by The Lafourche Education Foundation (LEF). LEF was founded in 1997 by local residents and business leaders who recognize that the strength of the community depends on the enrichment of public education.

 

“LEF’s mission is to raise and invest funds for charitable purposes that support, improve and advance public education in Lafourche Parish. We believe that our children deserve life-changing educational experiences that provide them with the skills and confidence needed to succeed in college and beyond,” reads an official statement from Lafourche Education Foundation. “We believe that all K-12 Lafourche public school students benefit from the generosity of families and members of the community.”
