Blackpot Festival is a Cajun throwdown held every year at Acadian Village. The pre-party — because in South Louisiana we need a practice party, you know, to make sure everyone knows how to have a good time — is the Thursday before and the afterparty — because if you aren’t done having a good time; it’s a last chance to get it out of your system — is at Lakeview in Eunice. The music at Blackpot is Cajun along with other traditional folk/roots genres thrown in. There is a cooking contest in a black pot, natch, along with an accordion contest. Lots of food, music and dancing with camping space available.

The line-up this year includes Feufollet, Corey Ledet, Red Stick Ramblers, Brass Bed, Les Malfactures and more. You can peep the full line-up here.

If you work one shift you get a one day pass to the festival. Two shifts, a weekend pass. Three shifts and they make you King or Queen of Acadian Village! Or they just really, really appreciate it.
