24th Annual Simi Valley Cajun & Blues Music Festival

This year’s Simi Valley Cajun & Blues Music Festival will be held over Memorial Day weekend, Saturday and Sunday, May 25-26. Both days festivities run from 10:30am to 8:00pm, at Rancho Santa Susana Community Park, 5005 Los Angeles Avenue, Simi Valley, California.

Hosted by the Rotary Club of Simi Sunrise, the festival boasts tons of live music and much more.

There are three performance stages displaying dozens of musical groups, including one stage just for kids. The music is all Cajun, Creole, Zydeco, and Blues, and the food ranges from traditional barbecue to authentic Cajun-Creole, with jambalaya, etouffee, crawfish boils, sausage gumbo, and much more.

Over 150 booths offer crafts, food, and beverages. Plus, there are Blues harmonica lessons, free Cajun dance instruction, with a daily Mardi Gras parade at 4:00pm, and ticket holders are invited to participate.

Because of great corporate sponsors, all proceeds from ticket sales go to a list of over 50 charities, supporting educational, humanitarian, and other charitable causes.

The festival is mainly about having fun, but it benefits many local, national, and international organizations, and focuses on Cajun heritage and the people of Simi Valley and surrounding Ventura County, California.

There is free parking in several areas nearby, and a shuttle service from the most distant at Simi High School.
