The Cajun Heritage Festival is an opportunity for the Southeast Texas Arts Council to promote Cajun culture and  art in the city in Port Arthur, a city where many Cajuns settled over the years.  Every year in April Cajun music legends both local and national rock the dance floor all day long while the crawfish boil, the etouffe simmers, and the beer flows. Man, it’s a great time!Blake Bertrand, SETAC
