      Louisiana sits above the Gulf of Mexico at the mouth of the Mississippi River, bordered by Arkansas to the north, Mississippi to the east and Texas to the. South Louisiana has an incredible musical tradition as well. In southwest Louisiana, the sounds of Cajun and zydeco music echo from restaurants featuring Cajun fare and a dance floor. Communities come together at boucheries - all-day pig roasts common throughout southwest Louisiana - where Cajun music guides both the cooking and eating.

    Louisiana has more festivals than any other state, and our music is the centerpiece for many of them. Try the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival or Festival International de Louisiane in Lafayette, the Red River Revel in Shreveport or Contraband Days in Lake Charles—there’s always a reason to dance and eat in Louisiana. About three hours west of New Orleans is the city of Lafayette, which is the heart of Louisiana's Cajun country. Lafayette and nearby Breaux Bridge have a number of excellent venues for Cajun music, but by far the most famous is the Blue Moon Saloon. Check the website for Cajun music events, as the lineup is often pretty eclectic.
