(Updated 7/1/2020)

Welcome back!

The Iberia Parish Welcome Center is open to the public with safety procedures in place following Phase 2 guidelines to protect the health of our visitors and staff.

The center has been thoroughly disinfected and high touch areas will be continually sanitized daily. Staff will wear masks and will complete the guest register sign up for visitors. Social distancing will be maintained and no more than 10 visitors at a time will be permitted inside the center. 

Visitors are encouraged to wear masks.

Due to the fast and ever changing COVID-19 situation, confirming the status of Iberia Parish cancellations and closures is an evolving process. See the bottom of this page for current closures and other resources.

How to Contact Us:
Call (337) 365-1540, e-mail us or send us a direct message on Facebook.

The best location to view whether or not an event is ongoing is our event calendar. We are also posting updates on our Facebook page. Please refer to your local government website for up to date CDC resources and procedures.

During this time we hope you will have patience with us, as we attempt to keep everyone informed. Iberia Parish is an area of small businesses who will be greatly affected by the current situation, so please be aware they do not make decisions lightly. Iberia Travel is hard at work, and optimistically focusing on recovery. Our long-term goal is to make the transition back into normal life as seamless as possible for summer leisure travel.

Please continuously check the resources section below for updates from other agencies.

During this social distancing time we recommend you explore our outdoors. There is no better place to escape the chaos for a little while than nature, and Iberia Parish is very blessed to have an abundance of it. Please remember to take care of yourself, both physically and mentally. 

Wash and sanitize your hands, and be kind to one another.
