Celebrate the area's diverse cultures with music and good food in downtown Port Arthur. Gates open at 10 a.m. Saturday and noon Sunday.
In the 1700s and 1800s, Louisiana and Southeast Texas became home to a variety of diverse people, notably French, African, German, Spanish and several Caribbean island cultures. They blended their cuisine, music, traditions and superstitions into the eclectic amalgam that came to be known as Cajun. Bits and pieces of that culture have so thoroughly entered the mainstream that you may be experiencing Cajun culture every day and have no idea!
At the Carnival des Cajuns, expect to see some of what you know and some of what you don't!
