About Us

St. Bernard Parish Tourist Commission

The mission of the Tourist Commission is to promote and market St. Bernard's rich history, culture, festivals and recreational opportunities. The vision is to enhance the economic fabric of the parish. The Tourist Commission is active in many events throughout the year including the Battle of New Orleans Commemoration, Islenos Fiesta, Tourism Awareness Week, local fishing tournaments, scenic byways, and trade shows.

With oversight from our Board of Directors, the Tourist Commission supports the St. Bernard Parish Office of Tourism in strategic planning, personnel, advertising and promotional campaigns which generate increased tourist visitation. The St. Bernard Tourist Commission administers the 2% hotel/motel tax. The State of Louisiana welcomed a record 47.1 million visitors in 2017 representing an increase of nearly 500,000. The travel and tourism industry generated $1.8 billion in state and local tax revenue. For St. Bernard Parish, that is over $2.83 million dollars added to the local economy!
