Lamar Dixon Expo Center

Baton Rouge



The Dixons constructed the Lamar-Dixon Expo Center, a state of the art multi-use events facility that will support charitable organizations and community development. For several years Mary Lee and Bill dreamed of creating a place for equestrian events that would also serve as a multi-purpose events venue in their home parish. Located on St. Landry Road, about a mile from Tanger Outlet Mall, the Expo Center offers parish residents an exposition center capable of seating several thousand people. Hold your wedding in the beautiful Acadian style chapel, boasting 3,950 square feet of space, full sound system, and dressing rooms for the bride and groom. This lavish wooden church with bell tower and cathedral windows is surrounded by trees and meadows for a quaint look. Step inside to the mahogany dark wood interior, dimly lit by Italian, intricate candle chandeliers hanging from the ceiling. At the end of the aisle, the altar is set against a backdrop of stained glass windows and a wooden cross. Have a romantic, traditionally stunning wedding ceremony at this dreamy chapel in the Expo Center.
