Port Arthur: Cajun Heritage FEst

April 8, 2017 - 12:00pm to 9:00pm

This event celebrates the area’s diverse cultures with music and good food. In the 1700s and 1800s Louisiana and east-southeast Texas became home to a variety of diverse cultures, notably French, African, German, Spanish and several Caribbean islands. These cultures blended their cuisine, music, traditions, and superstitions into an eclectic (and somewhat odd) amalgam which came to be known as “Cajun.” Dance to that foot-tapping music, chow down on the rich, delicious Cajun cuisine (gumbo!) and have some fun! 409-835-2787, •
