While an enormous portion of the attention this weekend is focused, justifiably, on the Cooper River Bridge Run, don’t forget you have to have fun after the run is over. The Lowcountry Cajun Festival fits that bill.
Now in its 24th year, the Cajun Festival is one of the most popular events in the Lowcountry. It’s a day full of Zydeco music, Cajun and Creole foods, kids activities, and more.While not native to the area, there is authentic Cajun and Creole fare – jambalaya, alligator, etouffe, andouille sausage and, the most popular of all…. crawfish!
For those who are sticklers about eating regional cuisine, there will also be Lowcountry favorites like seafood and Southern barbecue.
The Festival runs from noon to 6:00 PM on Sunday, March 29th and the James Island County Park.
Ticket are $15 per person, and food and drink is sold separately.
You can find out anything else you like to know on the Festival’s website.
