COME BACK CAJUNS!

Wayne Toups & Royal BluGarou

We were awful sorry to have to cancel last year, and we really appreciate all the people who called and expressed their love for the Cajun Heritage Fest. It’s a little later in the year than usual, but we’re back! Come join us on June 5, 2021 at the Carl Parker Multipurpose Center in Port Arthur for another year of Cajun music, food, dancing and fun!

Get your boogie on with Wayne Toups, devastate some mountains of crawfish, and raise a bunch of beers to good times with good friends. Don’t forget to pour one out for our friends who’ve gone on before us. Let’s raise a ruckus they can hear in heaven!

Panelist Comments

I enjoyed the fact that the applicant is building on a culture of a people that time would otherwise forget. The level of support and strategic partnerships exemplify in my opinion the type of creativity this category was designed for. Great Job.

Interesting to read about their history and work!

Strong letters of support. Strong partnerships for the event.
