DETAILS

11:00a to 7:30p both days

From the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival and Foundation:

NEW LOCATION! After seven fantastic years at the Old U.S. Mint, the Louisiana Cajun-Zydeco Festival is moving. We're heading to beautiful Armstrong Park - in the historic Tremé neighborhood. We'll be in the lovingly-renovated Louis Armstrong Plaza, the same place where we do our Tremé Creole Gumbo Festival in November. We're also saying "farewell" to our friends at the French Market's Creole Tomato Festival - we used to share a weekend with them, but this year they will be June 7-8, while our Cajun-Zydeco Fest will be June 14-15.

The eighth annual Louisiana Cajun-Zydeco Festival is proud to present a stellar lineup of performers. WWOZ will be live broadcasting Saturday's performances.
