Our 2017 Festival dates have changed...

Ville Platte, LA - Northside Civic Center

LA Smoked Meat Festival began in 1992 dedicated to the local chapter of the Vietnam Veterans Association.  Today, the festival is hosted by the Viande Boucanne' Inc. and the Ville Platte Lions Club whose goal is to honor ALL Military Veterans.  The festival is located in the "Smoked Meat Capital of the World" at the Ville Platte North-side Civic Center and Pavilion.  Everyone is invited to take part in our two day celebration of Culture, Cuisine and Heroes!  Come enjoy, Cajun food, exciting carnival rides, and live music on both Friday and Saturday night.  The "Smoked Meat World Championship Cook Off" is held on Saturday morning, followed by the Opening Ceremony, honoring our Veterans at 12:00 noon.
