About the Event:
If you love all things Louisiana this is the event for you! Austin Samba will perform three sets throughout the afternoon, from 11am until 4pm. In addition, enjoy two stages featuring 10 Louisiana bands. You’ll hear Funk, Brass, Zydeco, Cajun, and the Blues. Tempt your taste buds with some amazing food vendors who sell everything from jambalaya to alligator. If you prefer crawfish, the Louisiana Swamp Thing & Crawfish Festival has 7,000 pounds of FREE large, boiled, live Crawfish! Served one plate at a time while supplies last. We also have kid’s activities including bounce houses and slides, face painters, and more. Come ready to shop because the festival also has between 15 & 30 arts & crafts booths.
