Spring 2017 Photography Contest Winners

Holiday Hours

HOLIDAY HOURS:

Oak Alley Foundation's historic grounds and exhibits are open daily from 9am-5pm, but will be closed on Thanksgiving Day, November 26, 2020.  Admissions are required to enter the historic site and may be purchased upon arrival (no advance sales).  Visitors should allow 2 hours to visit the open spaces and exhibits but we do encourage you to arrive early to avoid longer waits for "Big House" exhibit.  Social distancing is highly encouraged and face coverings are required in all buildings and exhibits.  

We were so honored to have over 300 images submitted for this contest, and it would be an understatement to say judging these wonderful images, and having to narrow down the winners, was very difficult. Again, thank you for participating, and for your support of Oak Alley Plantation!
