The 30th Annual Bayou Boogaloo Music & Cajun Food Festival returns to downtown Norfolk, VA for three magical days!

The Festival is Norfolk’s annual love-fest with New Orleans’ vibrant spirit and captures the melting pot of Bayou culture. This delivers the heart and soul of Louisiana to visitors of Town Point Park in true Cajun and Creole style.

From New Orleans to the Downtown Norfolk Waterfront, multiple stages feature national, regional and local recording artists providing diverse cultural musical entertainment for all ages.

No Bayou celebration would be complete without the mouthwatering Cajun delicacies prepared by authentic Louisiana inspired chefs. Festival guests are in for a real treat as they feast on fresh crawfish straight from Louisiana, jambalaya, gumbo, etouffee, alligator, muffuletta, andouille, and beignets. Guests will also find festival favorites like sno balls (discovered in New Orleans, by the way!), root beer floats, smoothies, Italian water ice, glazed nuts, kettle korn and funnel cake. Wash it all down with a variety of cold beverages.
