We live not far from Acadian Village and love to visit during the Christmas lights fest. Educational and fun! Great places nearby to experience awesome Cajun/Creole food and culture.

“Nice lights”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012

It was a good experience, we enjoyed the lights and the entertainment was okay.

We also enjoyed the roasted peanuts; that was the unique aspect of the visit.

“Acadian Village is about "Cajuns"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2012

No, it's not City Park in New Orleans but then the name does not say Acadian Park. It's not over a hundred years old either. Let's compare apples to apples and oranges to oranges. It abounds with the history of the Acadian people. The buildings are set to resemble the way an Acadian village might have looked back when. These are original buildings with many artifacts from the doctors' office to the blacksmith shop and everything in between. One can see by touring the grounds how much love and care was taken to make this place look original. The Christmas lights are second to none and there is a festive mood at Christmas time with Christmas music and reading of the night before Christmas, Cajun style. It doesn't have a carousel but then carousels weren't a part of the original cajun villages.
