Louisiana Travel : Festivals Acadiens et Creoles

 

Festivals Acadiens et Creoles
Lafayette, Louisiana

Festivals Acadiens et Creoles started in 1972 as an effort to keep Cajun culture alive.  Celebrate Cajun culture beneath the spreading oaks of Girard Park listening to the best of Cajun and Zydeco music, feast on the spectacular spread of authentic Cajun and Creole food, shop the Louisiana Craft Fair for early Christmas presents for family, friends, and, don’t forget YOU!  Louisiana Folk Roots celebrates Louisiana’s rich cultural heritage.  At their Atelier and Jam des Amis tent, play alongside some of the best Cajun and Creole musicians.  Some of the best area chefs are on hand to present food demos throughout the weekend.  Children can enjoy French games, crafts, and music at La Place des Petits.
