The Biggest Louisiana-Themed Music And Food Festival This Side Of The Bayou
The largest… the most authentic… Louisiana-themed music and food festival this side of the bayou will be held May 11th through May 14th, and you won’t want to miss this wild party!
San Diego’s annual “Gator By The Bay” event is presented by the Bon Temps Social Club, and features four days of live music with over 100 musical acts and special performances on seven stages, southern cuisine including 10,000 pounds of crawfish trucked from Louisiana, non-stop live music, dancing and family fun at Spanish Landing Park!
Aside from the plethora of crawfish, there will be other delicious Creole & Cajun food and cooking demos by Southern chefs.
And the music will be non-stop in the genres of Blues, Cajun, Swing, Salsa, Country, Jazz and more.
The festival will kick-off with a concert headlined by Grammy nominated blues singer and pianist, Marcia Ball, on Thursday, May 11th from 6 – 10:30 p.m.
Some of the other musical headliners this year include Grammy-award winning Steve Riley and the Mamou Playboys from Mamou, Louisiana playing Cajun accordion, soulful fiddling and a blend of electric and acoustic guitar sounds for a new twist of traditional Louisiana folk music.
Blues, soul, funk & rock and roll group Igor Prado Band from Sao Paulo Brazil will also be gracing us with their presence, along with local guest Whitney Shay on vocals.
Chubby Carrier and the Bayou Swamp Band (also a Grammy-award winning band), Dennis Jones Band, Zydeco band Geno Delafose & French Rockin’ Boogie, Delafose, and many, many more will be ready to get you moving and grooving.
