Noel Acadien au Village will be held this year from December 2 – 23, 2022 from 5:30-9:00 p.m. All days and times are weather permitting. This is held at Lafayette Association for Retarded Citizens’ (LARC) Acadian Village at 200 Greenleaf Drive, Lafayette, LA
This is a critical annual fundraiser for LARC’s Acadian Village, a local 501(c)3 non-profit organization with its primary focus on assisting people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
Noel Acadien au Village lights up Acadian Village with half-a-million lights, including the fully lit Chapel. It has new animations, lighted holiday displays, live entertainment, carnival rides, local cuisine, photos with Santa, holiday shopping in the Christmas Store, concessions, hot chocolate and more. Tickets for carnival rides will be purchased onsite (not at the gate).
All proceeds directly benefit LARC’s Acadian Village and the residential, vocational, and community supports and services at LARC.
Tickets can be purchased online for $9 (+ $1 processing fee – link below), at local Acadiana Shop Rite locations for $8 and $10 at the gate. Cash & credit cards accepted at the front gate. (A 4% fee will be charged to the consumer if paying by credit card.)
They highly encourage people to purchase tickets online or at local Shop Rite locations which will allow for shorter wait times upon entry.
Tickets are nonrefundable.
Tickets are not required for children 2 and under. All others MUST purchase a ticket.
