Come and visit the Buggy Capital of the World, Church Point. Founded in 1848 Church Point is a predominantly Acadian-French Catholic community in the northeast corner of Acadia Parish. Also known for its authentic Cajun culture, Church Point celebrates the Buggy Festival every first weekend in June, complete with covered wagons, surreys and carriages. The citizens of Church Point recently raised funds to build a unique community playground which can be enjoyed by locals and visitors alike. You can also visit the gravesite of The Cajun Saint, Charlene Richard, who died from childhood leukemia. Area residents believe she has answered many prayers for intercession.
