Paddle Bayou Lafourche 2024

Join us for this year’s 2024 Paddle Bayou Lafourche! 🚣🏽‍♀️
This event offers an immersive and unique view of Bayou Lafourche and a chance to explore one of the most important waterways of our estuary. We’ll be offering a 15-mile paddle starting in Napoleonville, and a 9.5-mile paddle starting in Labadieville/Thibodaux. Both paddles will end at the Nicholls Bayou Side Park pavilion located across the street from the Chef John Folse Culinary Institute at 914 E. First St. in Thibodaux. The paddle will be followed with free food and refreshments, and live music by the Cajun Music Preservation Society at the pavilion. Register here:
