Le Marché des Fêtes is a unique holiday event benefiting the c. 1799 Creole colonial-style Pitot House on Bayou St. John, home of the Louisiana Landmarks Society. Visitors to the Marché are invited to visit with Papa Noël, shop for one-of-a-kind handmade art and accessories from 28 vendors, view artisan demonstrations, purchase books autographed by their favorite New Orleans authors, and munch on tasty local and exotic treats. There will be activities for children and performances by John Rankin, Mardi Gras Indian Drummers, and the choir of ENCORE Academy. And as always, Louisiana Landmarks Society will be selling a wide variety of Louisiana citrus trees, bagged citrus, Pitot house marmalades and pepper jellies. Visitors will also be able to tour the house, where they will see traditional Creole holiday decorations and learn about Creole holiday celebrations.
