Enjoy food from the bayou at the Lowcountry Cajun Festival

JAMES ISLAND, S.C. (Lowcountry Weekend) - The Lowcountry’s favorite ragin’ Cajun celebration returns to James Island County Park this spring.

Bringing Louisiana living to the Lowcountry, the Cajun Festival is a full day of music straight from the bayou, plus Cajun and Creole foods, children’s activities and more on April 22 from 12-6 p.m.

Event goers can expect a variety of food, including jambalaya, alligator, etouffee, andouille sausage and crawfish. If you prefer a milder menu, organizers say there will also be other Lowcountry staples, seafood, southern barbecue and traditional festival foods.

New this year, festival admission will be charged per vehicle, and tickets can be purchased in advance. Organizers say a limited number of vehicles will be let in, and tickets are expected to sell out. So buy them in advance!

Tickets will be $35 per standard vehicle of up to 15 people in advance. If available, tickets at the gate will be $40 per vehicle.

No coolers, outside alcohol or pets are permitted.
