Sugar Day Festival

​​​​Tel: (318) 487-5998 | Hours: Monday-Saturday 9:00am to 5:00pm

Sugar Day is a family friendly festival featuring handmade arts and crafts, live music from local musicians, dancing, children's activities and MORE. The main attraction is the actual process of sugar making, which we do in our reproduction 1840s sugar mill. Louisiana Sugar Refinery gentlemen, Jack and Seth return to tell the sugar story, plus many more that we do not have space on this page to name. Admission $5, children 3 and under Free.

National Reptile Awareness Day is coming up so lets celebrate a little early with the 2nd Annual Reptile Day at the Kent House on Saturday, October 19th from 9am to 1pm! Admission is only $1! Children 3 and under are FREE!


Reptiles are a vital part of a healthy environment, with common snakes helping to keep down bugs and rodents that would love to make a nest in your home. Reptile Day is an excellent opportunity to educate yourself on the wonders of the scaly world, and perhaps learn an appreciation for them.
