If you ever wanted to know more about Creole culture and its impact on our region, now you can.
The Creole Culture Day Celebration is back after being canceled last year due to the pandemic.
The Director of Operations at Vermilionville, Brady McKellar, tells KATC so much of what we know as Acadiana is just a big mix of cultures, including Creole.
“This gives us a day that we can say ‘Hey, this is Creole, this is a very important part of our shared experience,’ and we want to be able to focus on that and talk about all the things that it has done for us to what we recognize as life in Acadiana,” he said.
Traditional live music and food demonstrations are just some of the things that the festival offers.
McKellar says there are many reasons why people should come out to the event.
“It’s such a great time,” he continued. “And while you’re out here having such a great time, you’re likely to learn something, so we’re very excited about it. And it’s free.”
