Baton Rouge Holidays Overview


Baton Rouge (“red stick”) sits on the Istrouma Bluff of the Mississippi River and is Louisiana's capital. The city's name comes from the blood stained cypress pole that served to mark the boundary between the territories of the Houmas and Bayougoula Indians. The position of this capital city is one of great historic importance. The Istrouma Bluff placed it in the first line of defense from enemy both human and nature and made it a central port of trade and access to the rest of the country.

Around 20% of the population of Baton Rouge is made up of students from its many educational institutions like the Southern University, Louisiana State University and the Baton Rouge Community College.

The city's downtown is where the arts and culture scene is concentrated. This is where the Shaw Centre for Arts is located. The award winning venue is home to the LSU Museum of Art, Brunner Gallery, Manship Theatre, restaurants and travelling exhibits. Other venues in Baton Rouge include the Baton Rouge Gallery and the Louisiana Arts and Science Museum.

Baton Rouge also has a thriving performance and theatre scene with impressive performance venues like the Baton Rouge River Centre, Reilly Theatre and the Manship Theatre. The city also has a lot of architectural highlights. The New Louisiana State Capital is an art deco building. There are several plantation homes in Baton Rouge. Many of the buildings in the Louisiana State University are in the Italian Renaissance style.

Throughout the year there are several events and festivals that are celebrated in the city. There are many parades organized in the city for Mardi Gras but the largest one is celebrated in the Spanish Town. Some of the other festivals celebrated include the Red Stick International Animation Festival, Bayou Country Superfest, St. Patrick's Day Parade, Louisiana Earth Day and FestforAll.
