Authentic zydeco and French music, regional cuisine, African-American crafts. Call (337) 942-2392 or visit the official site.”  The site has no information on the 2010 festival, however.  And it’s always two days, likely Sept. 4-5.  It’s out in a big ol’ soybean field with no shade to speak of.  It’s a premier event but sounds like a killer weekend:  hot music, hot & humid weather.  Go see for yourself!
