The HDBA (Historic District Business Association) is bringing back Girls Weekend June 8-10. Girls Weekend is one of many events organized by HDBA, as well as the Natchitoches Car Show and the Natchitoches Christmas Season. Girls Weekend is geared toward ladies ages 21 and older and brings many participants from surrounding states to visit our quaint town.

Fees are $60, which includes all activities Friday through Sunday, with the exception of wine tasting on Saturday. An additional $35 is required for this optional event. Ladies will also enjoy a cocktail buffet Friday evening, mimosas and muffins Saturday morning and brunch on Sunday, as well as discounted shopping during the weekend.

Discounted accommodations, a complete schedule and online registration are available at If unable to attend the entire weekend, tickets are available for the hypnotist\comedy act on Saturday evening at BON Ami’ above the Landing Restaurant.
