Acadia Rice Arena's name was changed in July of 2002, which was formerly the Acadia Parish Multipurpose Building. JoAnn Smith, the former manager, coordinated the renovation of the facility. The facility is light and bright and is exceptionally clean. Mrs. Smith also completed RV hook-ups for campers and they are now available.
This place has it all! Functions at the Acadia Parish Rice Arena include: horse shows, cattle shows, goat shows, team roping, calf roping, clinics, benefits, auctions, rodeos, barrel racings, cutting horse shows, 4-H livestock shows, etc. . . .
