Description of Event:

The Buggy Festival of Church Point was originally organized by The ASMLF, Acadia St. Landry Medical Foundation, a non-profit organization, as a fundraiser in support of the Acadia St. Landry Hospital. This event has through the years, not only allowed the hospital to remain open but has allowed the hospital to add several new departments and expand into a top notch rural hospital. A festival to highlight buggies was chosen as a means for fundraising because Church Point, whose ancestors had used buggies as their main means of transportation into the early 1950's, was known as the Buggy Capital of the world. The Festival was organized and charted in November of 1981.The festival has donated over $440,000 to Acadia St. Landry Hospital, civic organizations and to the city of Church Point for park improvements. Two five-hundred dollar scholarships are offered each year, one to a graduating high school student from the hospital district that is seeking to enter the medical profession and another to the festival Queen. School programs and students are also a beneficiary of the festival proceeds.
