Lake Charles is a city in southwest Louisiana. Downtown, the Mardi Gras Museum explores the history of the iconic festival through colorful costumes. The 1911 Historic City Hall Arts & Cultural Center features traveling exhibitions and local art. Nearby, the giant, centuries-old Sallier Oak tree stands on the grounds of the Imperial Calcasieu Museum, a visual arts center. The city also has several large casinos.

“The Festival Capital of Louisiana,” Lake Charles hosts over 75 festivals each year, the most famous being Mardi Gras, the second largest in the state. The annual celebration attracts revelers with Cajun cook-offs, a children’s carnival and a lighted boat parade. The city celebrates its local heritage with “Louisiana Pirate Festival,” a two week long party in honor of the pirates that once sailed the local lake.

The City operates two cultural centers. Historic City Hall Arts and Cultural Center hosts numerous arts and cultural exhibits annually, including Pablo Picasso, Ansel Adams, Norman Rockwell, and one of the most-visited exhibitions Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition. In addition, two local art galleries are housed in the facility: Black Heritage Gallery and Gallery by the Lake. Central School Arts and Humanities Center serves as an incubator for individual artists and arts groups and also houses the Mardi Gras Museum.

The City of Lake Charles’ “Light Up the Lake” Christmas Festival and “Red, White, Blue and You” Fourth of July Festival have been recognized by the Southeast Tourism Society’s Top 20 events numerous times. These arts and culture events are just some of the reasons why Lake Charles was ranked in the top 10 happiest cities in America by the U.S. National Bureau of Economic Research.
