Circa 1951

This building, dedicated in 1951, was constructed with funds provided by the State of Louisiana. Designed by noted architect Owen J. Southwell, this local landmark, with its sugar cane mill inspired exterior and classic European Renaissance themed theater, was once the largest stage in Louisiana. The building's unique seating in constructed on metal frames curved to match the stage, allowing for the most advantageous viewing layout possible every other row of seats has a different width to allow alternating rows a view of the stage. This structure hosts a plethora of events culminating in the crowning of Queen Sugar during the annual, Louisiana Sugar Cane Festival and Fair. Donated by the Iberia Parish Government in honor of the citizens of Iberia Parish.
