Southwest Louisiana Zydeco Music Festival

The 40th Annual Original Southwest Louisiana Zydeco Festival

September 3, 2022
Yambilee Festival Grounds
1939 W Landry Street
Opelousas, LA 70570

About the Original Southwest Zydeco Festival:
The Treasures of Opelousas, a group of concerned citizens, feared that Zydeco and Creole music were dying; in response, they organized the first festival. With the guidance and sponsorship from the Southern Development Foundation, the first Zydeco Festival in 1982 was started in a bean field in Plaisance, Louisiana on the outskirts of Opelousas.

Lena Charles notes that it is important to support the festival’s mission in preserving creole culture and zydeco music in St. Landry Parish.
