Louisiana Cajun Zydeco Festival

Music in Tremé-Lafitte

Unbeknownst to a lot of visitors, the Cajuns and Creoles are different peoples. The Creoles settled largely around cities, while the Cajuns carved a society out of the bayous and prairies. Cajun homegrown music is zydeco and this is one of the few festivals that celebrates that sound – via a fantastic free concert day with lots of requisite rib-sticking food.
