small, rural town, Bogalusa offers a laid-back lifestyle in the piney-woods of
Washington Parish. With a strong history in music, Bogalusa celebrates its
musical roots annually with The Bogalusa
Blues and Heritage Festival, which was named the Best New Event of the year by the
Louisiana Association of Fairs and Festivals.
Arts & Culture
The Bogalusa Blues and Heritage Festival is held annually in scenic Cassidy Park and features native musical talent from Bogalusa. During Mardi Gras season, the Krewes of Bogalusa bring visitors from all over Washington Parish for the Magic City Carnival Association parade, and on the Fourth of July, an equally raucous and festive parade runs through town, concluding in a great fireworks display. There is also a Native American Museum, as well as a Pioneer and Railroad Museum located in Cassidy Park. Both museums offer exhibits and displays from Bogalusa's Native American, pioneer and railroad histories.
