Welcome To Our City



Welcome to the City of Donaldsonville, Louisiana. “Respecting Our Past and Building Our Future” is our theme. We are a historic community with a past we will not forget but we also have a vision for our future. As you will notice, we have respected our past by adding different languages that have been a part of Donaldsonville’s history below. I invite you, your family, friends, and future residents and business owners to visit our website and explore what our city has to offer.

In 2011 we engaged a group of citizens to work with the Louisiana Economic Development team to learn more about our city and what can be done to prepare for the future. We applied and were awarded to be “A Ready City Community” whereby we looked at the good,  the bad and the ugly.  Our city logo was well over 50 years old and did not promote our city any longer. Our website was outdated and needed many changes to capture the new changes we have encountered over the years, and our infrastructure needed repair. Our city was a beautiful and historic place but needed a little guidance to update. We want to thank all who worked tirelessly and who continue to work for our community.

Please enjoy our site!

-Mayor Leroy J Sullivan, Sr.

- RESCHEDULED: Donaldsonville July 3 Fireworks on the River Rescheduled to Saturday, July 7 Due to Threat of Severe Weather

As many of you know, due to a tropical wave that has formed in the Gulf of Mexico and the threat for severe weather, including lightening, flooding (4-5 inches of rain), and the threat of wind damage or tornado, we have decided to cancel the event on Tuesday, July 3 and reschedule for Saturday, July 7 (4pm). We apologize about the inconvenience, but safety is our first priority. We will have a banner located at the event site on Tuesday to let festival-goers know we are moving the event. At this time, we have only a few changes, but music, fireworks, etc., are still scheduled to go as we originally had planned it. Please help us by spreading the word. If you use Facebook, please share our post on DonaldsonvilleDDD, DonaldsonvilleLA, Visitdonaldsonville, or Donaldsonville Main Street.
