Every year the New Orleans Audubon Zoo puts on a two-day festival of Cajun and zydeco music, the Swamp Fest.  This year it’s Nov. 5-6. They have a fairly large stage, the Performance Pavilion.  But the most fun area is the Swamp Exhibit, which is a little like being out in the country.  It’s on the small side, though, so dance close!  There’s some country music mixed in there, too, to give the dancers a break.
