The NOLA Zydeco Festival comes back buzzing for its third year in a row with zydeco beats, dancing and plenty of local eats. Whether you're looking to break out of your comfort zone and take a dance class with a zydeco pro or just sit back and enjoy the tunes, the all-day fest is bound to be a blast for friends and family alike.
After being postponed in March, the festival is back in full swing with a new venue at the A.L. Davis Park and a lively lineup. Zydeco bands Korey Broussard and the Zydeco unit and Alphonse Ardoin and the Zydeco Kings join returning artists Rusty Metoyer and the Zydeco Krush and Lil Nathan and the Zydeco Big Timers for an unforgettable celebration of Louisiana Creole zydeco culture.
Starved after learning zydeco dance from Harold Guillory? Grab a bite from one of the local vendors in attendance. Creole fare from Peewee's Crabcakes, Morrow's, NOLA Cookie Co., and Afrodisiac will be featured alongside some more refreshing options like Meyer's Frozen Lemonade, Zydeco Rum Punch and "La-La" Margaritas.
Festival attendees can check out the event for free on Saturday, June 10, from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. For updates and information, head over to the NOLA Zydeco Fest Instagram or event website, nolazydecofest.com.
