Sabine Free State Festival 

The Sabine Freestate Festival celebrates the period in western Louisiana’s history when this region was declared a “neutral ground” pending settlement of a dispute between Spain and the U.S. as to the location of the boundary of the Louisiana Purchase. Activities include a western shoot-out, games, and contests such as the Annual Bar-B-Que cook off, woodsmen contest, auto contest, parade, treasure hunt, and music.
