Opelousas is the Zydeco Music Capital of the World and home to one of the biggest zydeco music celebrations, the Original Southwest Louisiana Zydeco Music Festival. In 1981, there was a real fear that Creole and zydeco music was dying out. To combat this, a group of concerned citizens organized the Southwest Louisiana Zydeco Music Festival. Today, the event features the best performers in zydeco. Swamp-pop, swing, R&B, and southern soul enjoyers will also have a great time. It’s the perfect event to dance to your favorite zydeco musicians.

This annual event, held the Saturday before Labor Day, has honored zydeco music fans with a Bloody Mary Zydeco Breakfast and a day-long lineup of South Louisiana’s trending zydeco musicians. It’s the perfect event to dance to your favorite zydeco musicians. You can also grab authentic plate lunches and Creole cuisine.
