Celebrate Italian Culture at the Sicilian Heritage Festival

Tangipahoa Parish is home to many festivals and we are proud to be counted amongst them. Independence is a beautiful old railroad town in the heart of Tangipahoa Parish that has been celebrating their Sicilian-Italian heritage through an annual festival for many years. The festival provides a fabulous fund-raising outlet for the area's non-profit organizations, including private & public school groups.

This festival also creates an important economic impact & raises awareness of our business communities up and down the parish by attracting visitors from not only outside the parish but out of state as wellThis year's festival will be held March 10th, March 11th, and March 12th, 2017 on the streets of downtown Independence and we expect it to be the biggest and best yet. The festival invests in advertisement that includes television, radio, print media, social media and the Internet. These efforts result in thousands of hits to our website and attract patrons from as far away as Texas, Mississippi, Arkansas, and beyond!

If you feel like escaping The Crossing Apartments in Denham Springs, Louisiana for the day, this event is a perfect opportunity to do just that!
