Our Culture Days, which are free and open to the public, demonstrate and celebrate the three primary cultures that contributed their foods, music, folklife, and traditions to the rich and diverse culture of our region; the Acadians, the Creole and peoples of African descent, and the Native Americans.
This program is made possible, in part, by grants from the Louisiana Endowment for the Humanities, Lafayette Consolidated Government, and The New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival and Foundation.
