Stay at The Caldwell House during Fairs and Festivals

Louisiana is well-known for its many fairs and festivals. There is hardly a town in the state that doesn’t Giant Omelettecelebrate something with a fair or festival of some type. Many times, there are several festivals on the same weekend within a short drive of each other. Abbeville, though small in size, has many excellent festivals and celebrations throughout the year.

Most of the festival events in Abbeville take place in Magdalen Square, located only 2 blocks from The Caldwell House. Guests who stay at The Caldwell House love the convenience it offers during any events held at the Square. They can come and go all day at will.

When attending a fair or festival in another town — Lafayette, Kaplan, Erath, New Iberia — The Caldwell is a great place to stay, as well.  The smaller towns do not offer accommodations as luxurious as The Caldwell House. In the larger cities, the festivals usually bring in many people. The hotels and motels are full, the restaurants are busy, and the traffic is horrific.  At some point, guests want to get away from all the crowds. A short drive to Abbeville affords the ability to leave the crowds behind, dine comfortably in one of our fine restaurants, and get a quiet night’s sleep.

Room rates are another reason to stay at The Caldwell House. It is quite common for hotel and motel room rental rates to be increased during a festival or event and often there is a minimum stay of at least 2 or 3 nights. The Caldwell House does not increase its rates and does not require a minimum stay – neither for festivals, holidays, or any other busy times of the year — always the same reasonable rate for luxury accommodations and consistently great service.
