Festivals Acadiens et Creoles will kick off in delicious fashion Friday afternoon with the cutting of the boudin at 5:00 in Lafayette's beautiful Girard Park. This festival celebrates everything that is Cajun and Creole culture, from music to food to the tradition that make Acadiana one of the most unique places on Earth.

As with any festival in our area, it is virtually impossible to put on such an event without the help of people who give their time. Volunteers are needed throughout the weekend, but especially on Sunday. It's easy to sign up. Simply click the link here for information or to sign up.

Become part of the team. Experience the joie de vivre of Festival Acadiens et Creoles! Help showcase our heritage to those who don't know what it means to be Cajun. Volunteer!
