Annual Christmas Bonfire Party

Oak Alley Foundation's  42nd Annual Bonfire Party

Oak Alley Plantation
3645 Highway 18
Vacherie, LA. 70090

Saturday, December 2, 2017
7pm - Midnight

Experience a regional tradition... The bonfire, whether handed down through generations from the Old World Germans and French who settled the area in the early 1700s or a more popular explanation of using the bonfires to light the way for Papa Noel, is a time honored tradition and the perfect way to kick off the holiday season.


Experience a bonfire on the levee; dine on a menu influenced by local cuisine and Chef's specialties; toast the season with a cocktail; explore the history of the plantation; enjoy the live entertainment.   

Proceeds from ticket sales go to Oak Alley Foundation, the nonprofit charged with preserving and maintaining the historic grounds and exhibits of Oak Alley Plantation.
