Festivals Acadiens

 
     
 

Festivals Acadiens September 16-18, 2005 Girard Park & Downtown, Lafayette, Louisiana

Celebrate the rhythm of Cajun life at Festivals Acadiens, held each year the third weekend of September in Lafayette, the heart of French Louisiana. Dance to a traditional Cajun waltz. Two-step to the upbeat rhythms of accordions, fiddles and ti fers (triangles). Step back in time as traditional crafters demonstrate their artistry. Festivals Acadiens pays tribute to the Cajun culture with a combination of FREE festivals. In 1974, the Council for the Development of French in Louisiana organized the first Tribute to Cajun Music Festival. This three-hour concert was a catalyst that attracted and educated the younger generation to the traditional values of the Cajun culture.
