It's time for the ninth annual Louisiana Cajun-Zydeco Festival, coming up June 6 & 7 at Louis Armstrong Park.
Welcome to the ninth annual Louisiana Cajun-Zydeco Festival, a free event produced and presented by the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Foundation.
The amazing Nathan Williams and his band, the Zydeco Cha Chas, will return to the Louisiana Cajun-Zydeco Festival on June 6.
'This festival contains the greatest collection of Cajun and zydeco artists for any festival in the city and perhaps the state.'
-- Charles Laborde, host of 'Lache Pas,' the weekly Cajun and zydeco show heard on WWOZ-FM

As at all of our events, we'll have a huge crafts fair, with 25 of the top artisans in the region selling hand-made art, jewelry and other fine crafts. For the complete list of vendors, see here.
It's the season for seafood, so that's what our diverse group of food vendors will feature. Louisiana oysters, shrimp, catfish, crab, crawfish and alligator are on the menu, along with boudin, jambalaya and much more. With 10 vendors of savory entrees and four for cool and refreshing desserts, there's a taste of something for everyone. See the complete list of food vendors and their menus here.
Yes, it's hot in New Orleans in June. But we'll help you keep your cool as you boot-scoot to the two-step beat with a half-dozen misting fans provided by our friends at Mist Works.
This year, we're enlarging our Kids Tent so parents can boogie to the music while their children enjoy supervised creative activities. We deploy our talented craft vendors to create a fun and lively atmosphere that encourages youngsters to express themselves. The Kids Tent will be open from noon to 5:00 p.m. both days of the festival.
