Plaquemines Parish Tourism Commission

What is the Plaquemines Tourism Commission?

Mission Statement
Our mission is to promote Plaquemines Parish as a regional, national and international tourist destination through quality advertising, marketing and public relations to attract visitors and stimulate economic development and growth.

Meetings are held the second Tuesday of each month at the Fill-A-Sack & Lil Lee's Deli on Hwy 23 at 4:00 pm. All are invited to attend.

Board of Directors
The Plaquemines Parish Tourism Commission is governed by a seven-member board of directors. Each member is appointed by the Parish Council after being recommended by a nonprofit organization located within Plaquemines Parish. The mission of the tourism board is to promote Plaquemines Parish as a destination for tourists and stimulate economic development.

The Plaquemines Parish Tourism Commission was specifically created by the Lousiana State Legislature to promote the people, culture and wildlife of Louisiana’s Delta Country.  A volunteer board promotes tourism in the parish and is funded by a 2 percent Hotel/Motel Occupancy Tax.
