The third annual Louisiana Cajun-Zydeco Festival is presented in partnership with The Great French Market's Creole Tomato Festival and Louisiana Seafood Festival. The three free events combine to make one New Orleans "Vieux To Do."

Two stages will feature the best of southwest Louisiana dance music, including the Grammy-award winning BeauSoleil avec Michael Doucet, Rosie Ledet, Steve Riley and the Mamou Playboys, the Pine Leaf Boys and many others.

Stage Locations: The French Market stage is located at the intersection of French Market Place and Barracks Street — adjacent to the French Market’s flea market, and just outside the rear gates of the Old U.S. Mint. The Dumaine Street stage is located at the end of Dumaine Street in Dutch Alley (between Decatur Street and the Mississippi River flood wall).

ALSO: Zachary Richard and his band will perform Saturday, June 13, from 6p.m. to 9p.m., as part of the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Foundation's Down By the Riverside concert series. This free event takes place at the Capital One Pavilion in Woldenberg Riverfont Park in the French Quarter. Piranah Swing (formerly VaVaVoom) will open the show.
