Cajun Fest is for all who love to let the good times roll in Port Arthur. Our Texas twist on celebrating Cajun music, dancing and flavors draws our Louisiana neighbors to Port Arthur for a day of making new friends and catching up with old ones.
Ever experience a crawfish race? Dare to enter the crawfish eating contest? Want to cut a rug? If you don’t know how to do these things, a Cajun will be glad to show you how.
Cajuns from Louisiana crossed the border to call Southeast Texas home and shared their music, crawfish and gumbo with us. The Southeast Texas Arts Council hosts this annual event.
Vendors with food and crafts will tempt guests. Activities in the past have included a dance contest. The Elite Redfish Series tournament weigh-ins were filmed during Cajun Fest in 2018.
