Vernon Parish is proud of its its history as a part of "No Man's Land" along what was the disputed border with Mexico. Outlaws and bandits as well as heroes and soldiers made their mark on this fertile soil. Louisiana's Legend Country celebrates their stories that shaped the culture of today. Enjoy our historic heritage and hospitality as well as our many outdoor adventures of today.
Vernon Parish's largest annual events include the MayFest Arts & Crafts Fair, winner of the 2012 Festival of the Year; the West Louisiana Forestry Festival & Fair; and Derby Daze Louisiana Championship Soap Box Derby, but our calendar is full of rodeos, art exhibits, heritage days, culinary cook-offs, and nature explorations. Explore our calendar and take in an event as part of your visit to Louisiana's Legend Country.
