The Gonzales Committee on Cultural Affairs (GCCA) is supported by
the infrastructure of the City of Gonzales.
GCCA promotes the City of Gonzales internationally and works as a
liaison between various cultural entities, including but not limited to,
festivals, schools, churches, art associations, businesses, restaurants,
tourist attractions, and other institutions which comprise the culture
of the city. Its purpose is to enhance the lives and environment of the
citizens of Gonzales and the surrounding communities.

In odd-numbered years, the City of Gonzales hosts a delegation from
its twin city, Meylan, France. Gonzales citizens welcome old and new
friends from Meylan to stay in their homes for an intimate experience
of life in Gonzales, Louisiana. GCCA organizes a week of stimulating
activities to immerse visitors into the fascinating local culture. In even-numbered
years, Meylan, beautifully surrounded by the magnificent
French Alps, likewise hosts a delegation from Gonzales.
Meylan is located in what was the royal, Dauphine province of France.
GCCA’s logo is a combination of a symbol of the Meylan region (the
dolphin) and a symbol of Gonzales (the jambalaya pot).
The societies of Gonzales and Meylan are mutually benefitted and
enriched through hosting. During annual exchanges, incredible places
are discovered, new ideas are formed, and lifelong friendships are made.
