Laissez les bons temps rouler on Sunday, April 7 at the 22nd Annual Lowcountry Cajun Festival.

Held at the James Island County Park, the Lowcountry Cajun Fest is a full-day of Zydeco music, Cajun and Creole foods, children’s activities and lots of entertainment straight from the bayou.

Local and regional chefs will be cooking up a variety of mouth-watering Cajun and Creole dishes like jambalaya, alligator, etouffe, andouille sausage and of course, crawfish, crawfish, and more crawfish! Also enjoy Lowcountry favorites like seafood and Southern barbecue. Those who prefer a tamer menu will find up ample portions of festival foods like hot dogs, snow cones, funnel cakes and more.

Live Zydeco music will be pumping from the main stage throughout the day to keep your toes tapping. Featured performers include: “Swamp Pop Princess” Shelly Waters, Unknown Tongues, and Sidewalk Zydeco. Other festivities include a crafts market, mechanical rides, inflatables and games for kids. 

Admission to the Lowcountry Cajun Festival is $10. The event is free for ages 12 and under with paying adult. No coolers, outside alcohol or pets are permitted. For more information, call (843) 795-4386.
