Cajun & Zydeco Festival

Bucking any hint of superstition, the Southern California Cajun & Zydeco festival will be back with its 13th annual edition June 5-6 at Rainbow Lagoon in Long Beach. Queen Ida, long the top female artist in zydeco music, will headline both days; fellow zydeco artist Terrance Simien and the Cajun band Eddie Lejeune & the Morse Playboys also are prominently billed both days. The shows run from noon to 7 p.m., with Cajun food and dance workshops featured along with the music in an attempt to replicate an authentic Louisiana party.
