La. Railroad Days Festival on track for April 8-10

By Jolene Constance

The DeQuincy Federated Service League is pleased to announce that the 2021 Louisiana Railroad Days will be held Thursday through Saturday, Apr. 8-10.

The Festival will look different this year due to having to meet COVID-19 guidelines set forth by the State Office of the Fire Marshal and the Department of Health.

There will be carnival rides and food booths. Advance carnival ride ticket sales will begin approximately Mar. 31. Be sure to check our website: and Facebook, Louisiana Railroad Days Festival and Instagram, larailroaddaysfestival for more updates.

All attendees will be expected to wear facemasks, and social distance. Attendees can only eat and drink in a designated area.

The Festival will have a limited capacity so different colored bracelets will be given out each day. Attendees will be expected to turn the bracelets in as they leave so that others will be able to attend. Old bracelets will be destroyed but will enable us to keep our capacity count.

New mandates from the state are due to be issued on Wednesday, Mar. 31. The festival will have to adhere to any changes mandated, so keep informed by revisiting our sites periodically.

Get ready for a fun and COVID-19 safe festival!
