Celebrate Christmas, Louisiana-style!

Christmas is a time to celebrate with family, and no one does that better than Louisiana! This brand new experience immerses you in Cajun Christmas traditions, games, and food!

Cajun Christmas is a 25 minute brand new performance for Winterfest. Guests will watch an opening show on the courthouse steps before being boarded on a trolley with a delightful guide. Your guide will tell you stories of how they celebrate Christmas in the bayou as you take a short ride to the Historic Village. At the village, you will disembark the trolley to another performance featuring Papa Noel, the Cajun Santa Claus.


Roam and Play with Gaston and the Gators

From there you will be free to roam the village, visit the museum, wrassle with gators, play a scavenger hunt, or dance to music. There is no limit to how long you can stay at the village, but trolleys will pick up guests to ride back to the courthouse every 30 minutes, the final ride arriving at 8:00pm.

Complete the crawfish scavenger hunt to win a crawfish necklace! Successfully wrassle an alligator to win a certificate proving your victory!

For the safety of our guests and our performers, capacity on our trolleys will be limited and guests over the age of 2 will be required to wear masks while onboard.

Gator Skating Preshow, Free to the Public

Watch Papa Noel's gators rollerskating around to classic cajun songs in the snow in front of the Artel Gallery!
