The French Food Festival is hosted annually on the last full weekend in October and features over 20 local specialty dishes. Dancing and music, along with Folklife demonstrations on Saturday and Sunday, offer everyone the chance to learn about Cajun life-ways -- boat building, cooking, music and more. More than just a food festival, the French Food Festival includes an old-fashioned carnival midway, complete with games, rides, and cotton candy. Festival dates are October 25, 26, 27 and 28 with a special presentation on Thursday the 25th.
The Lafourcheaise, or people of Lafourche, possess more than 200 years of a legacy rich with traditions, legends, and a distinctive way of life. Experience the essence of life on Bayou Lafourche at the French Food Festival's folklife demonstrations occurring on Saturday and Sunday. Folklife Demonstrations are denoted by three asterisks (***) on the French Food Festival Schedule of Events.
