The State Fair of Louisiana will give fairgoers a “Taste of the State Fair” offering a scaled-back version of the annual event that includes the Junior Livestock Show and the National Brahman Cattle Show, Oct. 29-Nov. 8. Fairgoers will also get to enjoy the food court, which will feature a number of unusual and iconic State Fair foods that people yearn for every year.
The new dates for the 114th Annual State Fair of Louisiana are April 29-May 9, 2021. The 11-day event will feature all the food, rides, live music, free show, and attractions that festival-goers love. The State Fair of Louisiana is one of the top fairs in the United States and attracts some of the top food vendors in the country. The Food Network named it one of “Top Fairs to Eat” and featured the Bayou Balls, a trio of deep-fried boudin balls packed with ground pork sausage, liver, rice, and the holy trinity in Louisiana cooking – bell peppers, onions, and celery – all laced with spicy Cajun seasonings.
