The Original Southwest Louisiana Zydeco Festival will be held near Plaisance, LA on Saturday, Sept. 4. There are two venues: the Heritage Stage and the Festival Stage. Festival Stage performances begin with the Pine Leaf Boys at 10:30 am and end with Lil Nathan and the Zydeco Big Timers starting at 11:00 pm. Other artists are Chubby Carrier & The Bayou Swamp Band, Buckwheat Zydeco, Lil Nathan & Zydeco Big Timers, Nathan Williams and the Zydeco Cha Chas, Geno Delafosse & French Rocking Boogie, Step Rideaux & The Zydeco Outlaws, JJ Caillier & The Zydeco Knockouts, and Chris Ardoin & NuStep. There are also events on days previous to the festival.
The grounds are on a field near Plaisance, so be prepared to go early. And it’s still summer, cher, and hot–so dress appropriately and bring the right accessories!
