Second New Orleans Cajun-Zydeco Festival Set
The second annual Louisiana Cajun-Zydeco Festival will return to the Old U.S. Mint in New Orleans June 13-15 with a lineup of Southwest Louisiana dance music.
The free festival features two Grammy winners--Terrance Simien & the Zydeco Experience and BeauSoleil avec Michael Doucet---and three recent Grammy nominees: Steve Riley & the Mamou Playboys, the Lost Bayou Ramblers and Roddie Romero & the Hub City Allstars.
Produced by the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Foundation, the Louisiana Cajun-Zydeco Festival is co-sponsored by the New Orleans Metropolitan Convention & Visitors Bureau and the Louisiana Division of the Arts.
The festival is being presented in close collaboration with two partner events: The Louisiana Seafood Festival (sponsored by the Louisiana Seafood Promotion Board and the French Quarter Business Association) and the Creole Tomato Festival (sponsored by the Great French Market).
