Local Events & Festivals

The Zwolle Tamale Fiesta honors the Spanish heritage of the area as well as recognizing the Native Americans who also helped create the unique culture in Toledo Bend. Watch a parade, ride the carnival rides, view a pageant, and listen to live music while also enjoying delicious food, especially the tamales. Zwolle, originally an Indian village, was settled by French and Spanish explorers who intermarried with the Native Americans as well as settlers from other areas of the United States. Eventually, Zwolle became a stop on the Kansas City Southern Railroad and named for a town in Holland in honor of a Dutch visitor who was well-known in the area. The festival, originally held in August each year, is now planned for October.

Every spring, the Choctaw-Apache tribe, which has about 21 families, holds an annual Powwow, welcoming visitors with local food, crafts, and dancing. The Powwow celebrates the roots of the tribe, especially those that lived on the banks of Toledo Bend. Forced from Los Adaes by the Spanish and sent to San Antonio in 1778, members of the tribe made their way back as close to east Texas as possible, settling in Nacogdoches in an abandoned mission. Eventually, they settled again in their ancestral lands on the Sabine River. It is held the first weekend in May and includes a gourd dancing competition, displays of artwork, jewelry, and other crafts as well as outstanding food. The Powwow is held at 217 Gene Knight Road in Noble, about 25 minutes from Toledo Bend.

The MTM Mud Truck Madness and Music Fest bring huge trucks, originally held over Easter weekend, but now held in June. You can watch drivers compete for $10,000 as they maneuver their trucks through a 525-foot mud pit. It is a family-friendly event and also includes an ATV mud bogging competition, a big tire limousine, and live entertainment. The event is held at 3680 Highway 476 in Many.

There are not many festivals dedicated to outlaws, but that is exactly what the Sabine Freestate Festival celebrates. Held in the Village of Floren the first weekend of November, the festival honors the “Neutral Strip,” an area between Spain and the United States after the Louisiana Purchase that both areas claimed as their own. Instead of fighting, however, both removed their troops from 1806 to 1822, working together to redraw the boundary, allowing many settlers, some fleeing from the law, to move in. The festival honors this unique history with a parade, games, a treasure hunt, demonstrations, bull rides, crafts, Wild West-style shootouts, and more. It is held in the Sabine Parish village of Florien, about a half hour from Toledo Bend.

If you are a Civil War history buff, the Battle of Pleasant Hill Reenactment is the perfect event for you. The original battle took place on April 9, 1864, and the reenactment features people dressed in period costumes. There is a replica camp and activities are held within the camp as well. The battlefield is located at 23271 LA-175 in Pelican, about 45 minutes from Toledo Bend.

Located about 30 minutes from Toledo Bend, Fort Jesup State Historic Site provides a glimpse back at a fort built after the boundary between the United States and Spanish territories was decided after the Louisiana Purchase. Fort Jesup was built in 1822 and Lieutenant Colonel Zachary Taylor, who would eventually become President of the United States, became the commander. The fort was named after Taylor’s friend, Brigadier General Thomas Sydney Jesup. The kitchen is the only historic structure remaining, but other buildings that existed in the fort have been reconstructed, including the officers’ quarters which have interpretive exhibits. It is located at 32 Geoghagan Road in Many, just 30 minutes from Toledo Bend.

A 300-year-old site that was once the capital of Texas, the Los Adaes State Historic Site gives you a glimpse back to 1716 when New Spain reached from southern Mexico to California. At that time, northwest Louisiana had very few residents and was just many outposts spread throughout the region. In 1714, a fort was built on the site and named one of the nearby missions Presidio Nuestra Senora del Pilar de Los Adaes. In 1717, the French stormed the mission, chasing the Spanish from the area. Two years later, they built another fort just two miles away, brought in more settlers and troops along with prisoners who had committed non-violent offenses. This time, the Spanish were successful, and the area became the Capital of the Province of Texas. Today, the location has a museum containing artifacts discovered there and you can see remnants of where the fort once stood. The historic site is located at 6354 Highway 485 in Robeline, about 45 minutes from Toledo Bend.
