We celebrate the spirit of this building each October with a signature fundraising event, The 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 in this historic setting! As part of your ticket to the event, an open bar and fine catered food is served along with music, photos, raffles and an art auction.
“The Spirits of Louisiana event is a wonderful opportunity for people to enjoy one of Louisiana’s most beautiful and historic buildings while supporting its historical and educational missions,” said Louisiana Secretary of State Kyle Ardoin. “The proceeds from this annual event fund important projects that educate and entertain locals and visitors from around the world.”
The Old State Capitol’s mission is to educate children and adults about our rich history through educational programming and interactive exhibitions. Louisiana’s vibrant history is unique and it’s our goal to share that with visitors. All proceeds from Spirits of Louisiana go directly to support the museum’s mission.
If you or your company is interested in sponsoring this event, please contact us or call 225-342-0500.
