Poche Plantaiton is located at 6554 Louisiana State Hwy. 44, Convent, Louisiana 70723

St. James Parish will continue to host its arts and craft shows, which were previously held twice a year on the west bank at Oak Alley Plantation. 

Vendors have agreed to move to an east bank 1870's plantation located in the center of Plantation Country along our famous River Road. The Nationally Registered Historic Poche Plantation, rooted in St. James Parish, is proud to be named as host plantation for this beloved South Louisiana event. Poche Plantaiton is located at 6554 Louisiana State Hwy. 44, Convent, Louisiana 70723.

By resolution, the Economic Development Board has given their praise and approval for this charitable non-profit show which is designed to benefit the whole of Saint James Parish. The new location is set for its fall debut show to be held Oct. 25 and 26, 2014.

Vendors, planning to show their arts and crafts as they have done year after year, are praising this more accessible location, which is centered equally for a show that will attract crowds from both Historic New Orleans and our State's Capitol, Baton Rouge, saying it is a major advantage and could produce record breaking attendance this fall.
