Get ready to boogie, cha! This is the Biggest and Baddest Zydeco Festival in Texas. A day of dancing, eating, partying, and grinning ear-to-ear is waiting for you and yours. Spend your day with some of the best zydeco bands in the nation.
What is zydeco? What started as a blend of Louisiana French squeezebox music with Afro-Caribbean beats has evolved to include guitar, drums, and many other blues/R&B instruments. The word Zydeco originates from a colloquial Creole French expression “Les haricots ne sont pas salés,” meaning “the snap beans aren’t salty.” Today, the phrase “the times are rough” rings the same meaning. Early zydeco offered a way for the rural poor to express and escape the hardships of life through music and dance.
Now, you and your friends and fam can steep in games, activities, dancing, the music, and the culture right in the middle of H-Town. Featured artists include Lil Steven & the Zydeco Futures, Lil Nate & the Zydeco Big Timers, Marcus Ardoin & the Zydeco Legendz, DJ Michele McKnight, and more!
