Have you made any plans for the weekend yet? Have you heard about the Lowcountry Cajun Festival? Are you planning on attending? If not, you definitely should—this local festival has something that everyone will enjoy!
Presented by Piggly Wiggly, the Lowcountry Cajun Festival will take place at James Island County Park (located at 871 Riverland Drive in Charleston) on Sunday, April 3, 2011, beginning at noon and ending at 6:00 pm.
At the Lowcountry Cajun Festival, you’ll have the opportunity to savor the best Cajun dishes from Louisiana and the best Lowcountry dishes from right here in Charleston.
Local, as well as regional, chefs will cook up delicious foods, including jambalaya, etouffe, alligator, andouille, sausage, Lowcountry favorites like Southern barbeque & seafood, and of course, the dish that the Lowcountry Cajun Festival is famous for—crawfish! Carnival foods (funnel cakes, hot dogs, sno cones, etc) will also be available for purchase.
In addition to an abundance of delectable food, there will also be plenty of entertainment like live Zydeco music, children’s activities, mechanical rides, a crafter market, and a crawfish eating contest (starting at 2:30 pm).
Admission to the Lowcountry Cajun Festival is $10 for adults & students and free for kids (age 12 and under). Gold Pass Members will also be admitted for free. For more information about this event, visit the official website of Charleston County Parks & Recreation.
