In July 2015, a section of Carencro was designated as a Cultural District by the Louisiana Cultural District Program. The designation provides for state and federal tax incentives to revitalize old buildings that meet state guidelines, in turn revitalizing the community.
The goals of the Carencro Cultural District include revitalizing the downtown area to stimulate economy and draw tourists, encourage creativity and create interest in the artistic community to locate to Carencro, and increase the property values of the downtown area.
Carencro Cultural District sponsors a Farmers’ Market from 8 a.m. –1 p.m. on Saturday mornings from May to October. Visit Carencro Cultural District’s Facebook page for up-to-date information on the Farmers’ Market.
