A new zydeco stage will bring more performances to the festival weekend where the good times roll.

Lighted night parades, elaborate costumes, Texas Country, Zydeco Cajun and Latino performers, a state fair quality carnival, vendors and street food make this family event an anticipated time in Port Arthur. Join in and catch some beads.
