This Saturday, October 20, the Lake Charles Civic Center will come to life at the 8th annual Culture Fest Louisiana, which will celebrate the diversity of SWLA with food, music, fashion, art, and performances that span across the many cultures and ethnicities found in our region.

Culture Fest is free to the public and has become one of the most buzzed-about festivals of the fall. This year’s lineup includes a variety of events for all ages and backgrounds, including a cultural display area, an international village for children, a world café, and a wide schedule of live entertainments.

Beginning at 10 a.m., the Lake Charles Civic Center will be full of the sights and sounds of community members showing off facets of their cultures. The main stage will feature dancers from the Hispanic community, the Indian community, Pakistani community, and the Native American community.

The festival will see a return to the area’s Cajun roots this year as it spotlights Creole heritage with music by Mason Trail, Cedryll Ballou, Brandon Ledet, Rosie Ledet, and others. The accordion maker, Ed Poullard will bring some of his accordions to display.

This event has something for everyone, with more than ten food stations, twenty artisan booths, and thirty interactive cultural displays.
