Spirits of Louisiana

Our annual fundraising event that features local distilleries set in our historic building

On the fourth Thursday of every October, we hold our annual fundraising event, Spirits of Louisiana. For this unique event we invite local distilleries to serve up their spirits for our guests. The event has quickly grown to be one of the premiere events in Baton Rouge with attendance growing each year. Our guests are encouraged to dress up and have fun! As part of your ticket to the event, an open bar and fine catered food is served along with music, photos and a special raffle. All proceeds for this event are put directly back into museum for future exhibits and programming.

Be sure to check back for information on ticket sales.

If you or your company is interested in sponsoring this event, please contact us.


Louisiana’s Old State Capitol has a story unlike any other. It has witnessed war, fire, fistfights, and neglect. This National Historic Landmark is a testament to the resiliency of our state and its people. We celebrate the spirit of this building each October with a signature fundraising event, The Spirits of Louisiana. Secretary of State Kyle Ardoin, Friends of the Old State Capitol and The Old State Capitol Foundation invite you to the sixth annual Spirits of Louisiana. This year's event will take place Thursday, October 27 and will feature spirits crafted by Louisiana distilleries, catering by Drakes, music, and an art auction-all beneath the beautiful stained-glass dome.

Guests must be 21+ to attend.

Those interested in donations, sponsorships or help with purchasing tickets should contact Brooke Goodrich at 225-342-0500.
