About Us


The Ascension Parish Tourism Commission is proud to host “Taste of Ascension” culinary event starts the second Monday in July. Taste of Ascension will highlight the best cuisine Ascension Parish has to offer. They invite you to try some of their savory cuisine from many popular local restaurants who have created special price fixed menus that will be available for the two-week event. You can view the delicious offerings of the participating restaurants on the website. It’s simple, just ask for the Taste of Ascension menu when you get to the restaurant!


Ascension Parish Tourism Commission’s mission is to enhance and develop tourism for the betterment of residents and businesses in Ascension Parish. As Ambassadors to this great Parish, educating visitors about why they need to come to Ascension is what we do. Just off I10 between Baton Rouge and New Orleans makes Ascension easily accessible for visitors, conferences and sporting events. A parish filled with plantations, festivals, expo center, great food, accommodations, museums, outdoor activities, local entertainment and southern hospitality allows us to truly have something for every age.
