It’s time for New Orleans’ 11th annual Louisiana-Cajun Zydeco Festival.
Music is as treasured as red beans and rice in New Orleans, and so the Louisiana Cajun-Zydeco Festival is a free event that locals relish. Held at Louis Armstrong Park on June 24 and 25, it will feature talents like Chubby Carrier & the Bayou Swamp Band, Dwayne Dopsie & the Zydeco Hellraisers, and the Lost Bayou Ramblers. Scope out the new Folk Life area to see how Cajun accordions are made.
