About

Up to 300 guests

Located in the heart of Lafayette, Louisiana, Vermilionville is a living history museum and folklife park that preserves and represents the cultural resources of the Acadian, Native American and Creole Cultures - from the time period 1765 to 1890. The park sits on a 23-acre site on the banks of the Bayou Vermilion with 19 attractions, including seven restored original homes. Vermilionville is a charming and captivating place to host your special event. As you gather in our climate-controlled facilities, the staff at Vermilionville focuses on providing comprehensive catering services in a unique and memorable setting for one exceptional experience.

Our Performance Center is perfect for social gatherings, company banquets, weddings, parties or conventions. This quaint building can accommodate up to 350 inside. However, by sliding open the exterior walls (seasonal only) and utilizing our charming courtyard, the capacity increases in size.

For smaller occasions, our restaurant, La Cuisine de Maman, may be your ideal location. Evening hours allow you to take advantage of the entire restaurant which can accommodate up to 75 guests.

Vermilionville's Conference Room is ideal for meetings of 20 people or less and is available with or without catering.

A variety of appetizer items, banquet style meals, a barbecue or crawfish boil is offered through our on-site catering department. Whatever your culinary desire, our goal is to meet your needs and provide customized and personalized service.

We look forward to the opportunity to make your event one exceptional experience that will endow your guests with memories for a long time. For more information about our rental options or if you would like to schedule an appointment, please call 337-233-4077 x 208 or email Hospitality@BayouVermilionDistrict.org. Please note that the office is closed on Mondays.

    The chapel at Vermilionville is an excellent place for a small ceremony, quaint, quiet and very pretty.
