The most glamorous part of the Sugar Cane Festival is always the official annual sugar cane pin. This year’s design by Allain’s Jewelry is absolutely beautiful. It depicts a sugar spoon with a few bright green sprays of sugar cane. It is available exclusively at Allain’s Jewelry.

The reveal of the Sugar Cane Festival poster is always so exciting. This year’s festival poster artist is Jena Broussard-Richardson. The piece is titled “Saccharum officinarum.” She explains that it is a “water color and pen study of the physical form and external structure of sugar cane.” Make sure to add this beauty to your collection.
It’s not officially festival weekend until you have the Official Festival TShirt. Collecting each year’s shirt is a time-honored tradition. This year, the shirts come in a variety of colors. You can choose from green, gray, blue and classic white. Pick up one for the entire family at participating retailors.

Lining up the perfect Festival outfits is a major task! This skirt is absolutely perfect for a fun day of festivities. Its heavy fabric is perfect for fall, but it’s still cool enough to breeze through a Louisiana summer day. Complete this look with a wide brimmed hat and the perfect pair of booties.
