This one’s only been around a few years, but everyone who goes loves it.  I haven’t made it yet; it’s too close to Festivals Acadiens et Creoles.  It’s held at the Acadian Village in Lafayette, and this year’s weekend pass is $30.00.  Music is Friday evening and Saturday 11 am to midnight.  All the great young bands will be there:  Bonsoir, Catin, Pine Leaf Boys, Lost Bayou Ramblers, and the Red Stick Ramblers.  Walter Mouton & the Scott Playboys will play.  Mouton retired from his weekly gig at La Poussiere, so this is a great chance to see him.  The accordion contest could be incredible.  Photos from the 2006 festival are available on the web site.    Blackpot Festival and Cookoff.
