The Lowcountry Cajun Festival is known for its food and its music, and this year's 23rd annual event is no exception. With acts hailing from across the country, James Island County Park will feature a unique musical lineup on Sunday, April 6, from noon to 6 p.m.
A celebration of Louisiana living here in the Lowcountry, Cajun Fest is a full-day of Zydeco music, Cajun and Creole foods, children's activities and ragin' Cajun entertainment at James Island County Park.
Local and regional chefs will cook up a variety of mouth-watering Cajun and Creole foods, plus Lowcountry favorites. Non-stop Zydeco music performed live throughout the day will keep hips swingin' and toes tappin'. This year's three featured musical acts will be “Swamp Pop Princess” Shelly Waters, Curley Taylor and the Zydeco Trouble, and Felix Y Los Gatos.
Headlining this year's festival is a group straight from the bayou. Singer and accordionist Curley Taylor was born in Louisiana and has been performing since playing drums in his father's band at age 16.
Today, Curley plays with friends Keith Clements (keyboardist) and Erick Minix (drummer) as the Zydeco Trouble. Curley Taylor has released four albums and tours throughout the country.

Food vendors operate on a ticket basis. No coolers or outside alcohol permitted. Carpooling is encouraged. Pets are not permitted to this event.
