Straddling the parishes of St Landry and St Martin and 30 minutes from Lafayette, Arnaudville is located in the heart of rural Acadiana at the junction of Bayous Teche and Fuselier. All eight approaches to Arnaudville take you through cloud land. The vistas rival any magical show on earth. It is a place where our culture adds to our economy. In recent years, the Arnaudville area has become a haven for musicians, artists, dancers, writers, photographers, culinary, eco adventurers, and champions of the French language where approximately four out of 10 residents still speak French on a daily basis.
About NUNU and French:
At the core of that development is NUNU. NUNU is dedicated to fostering a living culture using a combination of art, music, dance and French. It features a variety of programming including La Table Français d'Arnaudville, hosted by Mavis Arnaud Fruge, where locals and visitors alike share conversation filled with stories and song over a complimentary cup of coffee.
And French isn't just limited to NUNU, you can find it scattered throughout the collection of stores, shops and restaurants. While visiting, just look for the CODOFIL sponsored signs scattered throughout the community, “Ici on parle français.” Simply start the conversation in French and see where Jacqui Duplechin at Thrifty Way Pharmacy, Girley Olivier at St Theresa's Thrift Shop and Huey Wyble at Wyble's Sno Balls take you!
Arnaudville is also home to Bayou Teche Brewing, a craft brewery featured on the Louisiana Brewery Trail. Here beers are crafted to complement the cuisine and lifestyle of Cajuns and Creoles, like LA-31 Boucanée – made with cherry wood smoked wheat
