Don’t Miss The First Ever Creole Renaissance Festival [VIDEO]

 

Ever heard the term Creole?  I’m sure you have, but do you know what it really means?  A lot of people don’t, but I promise you one thing, if you get a chance to check out the Creole Renaissance Festival this Saturday you’ll get a good idea.

The Creole Renaissance Festival-creolerenaissancefestiva.com

The name Creole refers to people with the unique blend of African, Spanish, Native American and French heritages and influences.  Come out and celebrate the Creole culture with live music, delicious Louisiana food, various venders, a $1,000 dance contest and more.  The Creole Renaissance Festival will take place this Saturday September 1st at the Yambilee Building in Opelousas, LA. Doors open at 12pm and goes until 2am.  The Creole Renaissance Festival website says it best.

Throughout the world the word “Creole” can mean so many different things to so many people.  But in Southwest Louisiana and East Texas, Creole is a way of life for French-speaking people of color who have dwelled throughout the region for over 300 years.  While many believe Creole is a race identified by a particular skin tone, trued Creoles throughout this area know firsthand that Creoles of color can be as pale as a crisp white sheet hanging from your grand-mere’s clothes line or as dark as night on a Louisiana bayou and yet both can be undeniably Creole.  That’s because being Creole is a lifestyle.  From the French we speak, to the gumbo we eat and the Zydeco we live and die by…Creoles are the heart and soul of Louisiana!

Speaking of Zydeco, the music line-up is going to be out of this world:
