Angola Prison Rodeo  

Oct/02/2016 - Oct/30/2016
Location: Angola Prison

Only the most well behaved prisoners get to participate in the rodeo, and some spend all year making arts and crafts to sell at booths outside the arena. Jewelry, leather crafts, furniture, plants, and handmade items are all available for purchase. There is also live entertainment throughout the day, (the inmate band is actually kinda awesome!) and the popular Angola Museum is open for tours.

Tickets are $20 for the rodeo, and can be purchased online, or by calling (225) 655-2030, 2607 or 2008. If you just want to go to the arts and crafts area, tickets are $10, and you can purchase them at the gate.

Dates for the fall rodeo are October 2, 9, 16, 23 and 30. Gates open at 9:00 am, rodeo begins at 2:00, and the arts and crafts end at 5:00 pm. The Louisiana State Penitentiary is located at the end of Highway 66, approximately twenty-two miles northwest of the town of St. Francisville, Louisiana (Highway 61).
