Southeast Tourism Society Top 20 Event

CAMERON, La. (Dec. 19, 2019)—The Southeast Tourism Society (STS) recently honored the Louisiana Fur & Wildlife Festival as a 2020 Top 20 Event for the month of January.


The festival will be held Friday–Saturday, Jan. 10-11, in Cameron, La., with plenty of activities for festival-goers, including parades, pageants, a 5K run and 1-mile fun walk, as well as dances, Cajun music, a gumbo cook-off, exhibits and a carnival. This year will also feature two new events for kids: the Kids Master Oyster Race and Master Fishing Race. You can also check out unique contests like duck and goose calling, trap setting, nutria and muskrat skinning, oyster shucking and skeet shooting, and always a favorite among hunters are the dog trials. These contests and more make this a memorable experience for the whole family and a reason why people keep coming back to one of Southwest Louisiana’s “oldest and coldest” festivals. This year's festival will honor the energy industry.
