The annual Southern California Cajun & Zydeco Festival in Long Beach and the Troubadours of Music & Crafts Festival will not clash on June 4-5 after all. Troubadours fest promoter Jim Rissmiller said the event has been postponed, probably until late August, because of rising costs and the loss of the event's airline sponsor. He said the festival will not take place in UCLA's Drake Stadium as announced, but at a location to be determined.
