The Cane River region has a rich tradition of live musical performance. The community was once home to numerous juke joints and dance halls, where farmworkers could enjoy an evening of live Creole music, blues, jazz or early rock and roll. In honor of this tradition Cane River Creole National Historical Park will join together with the Cane River National Heritage Area to host the 8th Annual Cane River Music Festival at Oakland Plantation Saturday, May 20 from 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. This event is free to the public.
Bring chairs, blankets, food, drink, friends and family and relax under the shade of the Oak Allée.
