Long Beach Bayou Festival

June 24th, 2017

Duration: Multiple Days
First Day : Jun 24, 2017

In its 31st year, the Long Beach Bayou Festival is proud to continue its time-honored legacy in the city by the sea. The Long Beach Bayou Festival offers patrons a weekend filled with cultural music, cuisine, and dance from a place called ‘home’– New Orleans and the Louisiana Bayou Country. We are excited to share the best parts of Louisiana Bayou and New Orleans Culture with Long Beach. We invite you to delight in the specialties of Cajun and Creole cuisine and savor the many delicacies and flavors of the Big Easy. Rich in cultural music traditions, the Long Beach Bayou and Blues Festival presents a wide range of groups, featuring Cajun, Zydeco and Blues artists.

The dance floor is always open. Experience the New Orleans Traditional Jazz Band and come Second Line with the best of them at the Long Beach Bayou Festival.
