Cajun Nation Fest is a two-day, family-friendly music festival with a Cajun twist organized to support relief efforts from the devastating flood that hit the heart of Louisiana in August. The goal of this event is to bring the community together to help this beautiful state we call home heal and rebuild. In partnership with the Iberville Good Works Foundation, all proceeds from the event will go to the Baton Rouge Area Foundation Flood Relief Fund.
The weekend’s lineup is packed full of Louisiana heart and talent with performances by CJ Solar, Charley Rivers, Travis Matte, Foret Tradition, Josh Johnson with his new single “Louisiana Blood is Thicker than High Water,” The Anteeks, Tet Dur, Two Shots ‘Till Sunday, Bernie Alan Band, Boot Hill Band, Jacye & Company, Bayou Bullets and more! Stay tuned for the full-lineup being announced soon. Performances will run 10 a.m.-10 p.m. on Saturday and 10 a.m.-9 p.m. on Sunday.
In addition to a two-day entertainment lineup, families can also enjoy a variety of food and drink vendors; children’s activities including a petting zoo, pony rides, bounce houses, face painting, trick-or-treating, a costume contest; and much more. A jambalaya cook-off will be held on Saturday morning with jambalaya plate lunches available for purchase at lunch. An antique car show will also be held on Sunday. The committee is now accepting pre-registrations for both the cook-off and car show, email firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
