The History Behind the Cajun & Blues Music Festival

Blues music inherently has an extensive history spanning the American landscape, and the Cajun & Blues Music Festival exists to celebrate this stunning and everlasting history. Benefitting multiple charities, the event began in 1988 as an event in support of the Rotary Club of Simi Sunrise. Just two years later, the Creole aspect was universally adopted, and the event evolved through the years from these modest beginnings. The Cajun thematics were widely embraced, and the event obtains about 15,000 attendees on any given year.

Taking place Memorial Weekend, the history behind the Simi Valley Cajun & Blues Music Festival showcases an eclectic mix of Blues artists in the Cajun home style. It also displays an engrossing 150+ booths and vendors for attendees, and has quickly become the largest event of its kind in the Midwest and West Coast.
