cajun festival

The weather’s getting hot, and you know what that means: time to head outside and crush some hot foods and cold beverages while enjoying live music. If that sounds like your idea of some weekend fun, then we’ve got the perfect event for you this weekend: the 23rd Bayou City Cajun Festival at Traders Village. Laissez les bon temps roule!

The 23rd Bayou City Cajun Festival brings the best of the bayou right to your backyard here in Houston: food, music, and good times. All sorts of Cajun cuisine will be on hand, from crawfish boils to shrimp po’ boys and of course classic Louisiana creole dishes like jambalaya and gumbo.

While you’re chowing down on Cajun food, be sure to tap your toe to the free Cajun music starting each day at noon. Traders Village has rounded up the best Zydeco and Cajun acts in the region this year, including Keyun and the Zydeco Masters, Bayou Roux, Platinum Players, and The Zydeco Dots. Don’t eat too much crawfish: you’ll want to have plenty of energy for dancing to these bands guaranteed to bring a party to Traders Village.

While you’re enjoying the sounds and tastes of the festival, be sure to stroll around the over 150 acres of bargain-hunting open-air shopping Traders Village offers. You never know what you might find, except for one thing: bargains. Once you’re done shopping, pick up a $9.99 unlimited All Day Ride wristband and enjoy the classic American-style amusement park rides.

The 23rd Bayou City Cajun Festival will be held all day April 6 and 7 at Traders Village Houston, located at 7979 N Eldridge Pkwy, Houston, Texas 77041. Parking at Traders Village is always just $4, and peak shopping times are between 10:00 am and 5:00 pm. Live music starts each day at noon.
