Taste Louisiana Cajun and Zydeco Fest
May 27, 2006 - May 29, 2006

An Authentic Cajun Fais-do-do of Cajun, Swamp Pop and Zydeco Bands
Amana Colonies Outdoor Convention Facility
Amana Iowa


Join in the fun of an authentic Cajun fais-do-do (get together) as Cajun, swamp pop and Zydeco bands, dancers and musicians leave their native Louisiana bayous and travel north to the corn belt of Iowa for the Ninth Annual Taste Louisiana Cajun & Zydeco Festival. Talented troops of Louisiana musicians, dancers, and cooks take over the Amana Colonies Outdoor Convention Facility in Amana, Iowa for toe-tapping entertainment and savory Cajun food. Cajun and Zydeco dance is a focal point of this year's event. Dance instructors Maurine McCort and David Jordahl teach all levels a variety of dance styles. Not only will the music be spicy, but the food will be, too! From jambalaya to crawfish to beignets and everything in between, it’s all cooked fresh by a crew of Cajun cooks imported from the kitchens of the bayou and French Quarter! Be there to experience authentic Cajun culture – it’s a trip to Louisiana without leaving the Midwest!
