From Louisiana Shrimp & Petroleum Festival Website:
Deep in the heart of Cajun Country, every Labor Day Weekend, tens of thousands of people celebrate at Louisiana's oldest chartered harvest festival.
The festival has been honoring those who have worked tirelessly through rain and shine...and sometimes even hurricanes, to provide the area's economic lifeblood for over half a century. The festival also emphasizes the unique way in which these two seemingly different industries work hand-in-hand culturally and environmentally in this area of the "Cajun Coast." The event is free and has grown to become one of the country's premiere festivals. There's plenty of fun for "kids" of all ages and lots to see, hear, do and eat! The festival is truly a feast for ALL senses and according to Time Magazine, "...one of the best, most unusual, the most down-home, the most moving and the most fun the Country has to offer..."
The Louisiana Shrimp & Petroleum Festival, the state's oldest chartered harvest festival, garnered the award of 2011 Festival of the Year as well as Best Cap Open Marketing in Division III.
