Come December, Iberia Parish has a multitude of events planned to make this holiday season memorable. Loreauville's Christmas in the Village (Dec. 5) kicks off the season.

Get some holiday shopping done at Shadows-on-the-Teche's Holiday Christmas Market (Dec. 12). There will be vendors with diverse hand-made items from fine art to food and furniture. A special tour is included in the fee. Raffle tickets will be sold to win items donated by the vendors. This year, the event has been modified to ensure a safe experience for visitors, vendors, and workers.

Santa Sightings

With all the holiday happenings around Iberia Parish, the kiddos will have ample opportunities to see the jolly man. Santa Claus makes his first sightings on Dec. 4, 2021 during the Delcambre Seafood and Farmers Market at Bayou Carlin Cove.

Bayou Traditions will present the New Iberia Christmas Parade on Dec. 11, 2021. Families can enjoy holiday events throughout the day, including a Christmas themed breakfast at Pancakes & PJs with Santa and the Greater Iberia Chamber of Commerce's Very Berry Christmas Quest.

The jolly man will then follow the magical elf trail to the Delcambre Main Street Christmas Parade (Dec. 12, 2021).

With all these exciting events, the holidays are a wonderful time to visit the South’s merriest North Pole, Iberia Parish.
