a Choctaw village, Abita Springs is a quiet, eclectic town known for lush
greenery and friendly residents. Regionally famous as the home of Abita Brewing
Company, it's a popular destination for its brewery tours and tastings. The
beer is brewed from the mineral water pumped from the springs which give the
town its name. As a perfect complement to the brewery, Abita Springs is well
served by bike trails and sidewalks which access the beautifully landscaped
Arts & Culture
Abita Springs features numerous venues that show off local artistry, from its entirely volunteer-staffed Trailhead Museum to its series of music concerts held six times per year at the intimate town hall by the Abita Opry. This year, the Abita Springs Museum and the Abita Opry came together to host the 4th annual Louisiana Busker Music Festival, one of the most well attended outdoor events in Abita Springs, which includes live music, great food, drinks, and an arts and crafts village with works by regional artists.
