Downtown Hammond
As our great Mayor Mayson Foster would say “It’s a beautiful day in Downtown Hammond!” Whether you are looking for wholesome family fun, great shopping, culture & entertainment or a fantastic meal you are sure to find all of those right here in Hammond.  Conveniently located between two of Louisiana’s largest cities and at the junction of two major Interstates, Hammond is clearly the perfect choice to live and work.

The Hammond Downtown Development District can boast a number of alluring reasons to draw one’s attention to this great city.  Not only is Hammond a multi-year recipient of the “Louisiana’s Cleanest City” award but it also is the hub of entertainment, restaurants, night life and cultural events.  The Downtown Development District itself is home to more than twenty great restaurants and over ten downtown locations for an entertaining nightlife.

Experiencing the great culture of food, music and fun is one of the great attractions which bring newcomers to Hammond.  It is the friendly, welcoming hospitality of Hammond that keeps them here. Hot August Night, Starry November Night and Art in April are annual events where attendees enjoy a wide variety of art, music, and merchants offering special promotions or treats.

During the months of March through December the Hammond Farmers Market and Art & Crafts Market are open on the 2nd and 4th Saturdays to help visitors in an effort to “Shop Local”.  In addition to the market, Hammond’s Downtown has a variety of merchants who will bring a smile to any shopper’s face whether you are looking for uniquely Louisiana gifts and books, fashionably precious baby clothing, stylish men’s and women’s attire or beautiful jewelry and accessories.
