Dinners & Dances
INCLUDED WITH CULTURE CAMP & OPEN TO THE PUBLIc
Dinners at 6:30pm - Dances at 8:30pm
Culture Camp celebrates the end of each day with a super fun and fabulous themed dinner and dance! Dinners are cooked in traditional style by performers and chefs from around the United States. Tickets for “dinner and a dance” or just “the dance” are sold separately. You don’t have to do both- you can come to just the dance if you'd like. In the tradition of the festive GrassRoots community spirit, the dinners and dances are open to the public! All are welcome to join in this special time each evening. Come warm up your dance shoes with us in a more intimate setting before the main festival begins!

STEVE RILEY & THE MAMOU PLAYBOYS

(Cajun two-step workshop afternoon of the dance)
"When all that heart and all that skill focus on the revelry of a hot two-step, then turn on a dime and deliver an a cappella ballad, then play something that sounds like Howlin’ Wolf fell in lust with a Creole girl, you’ve found the most Cajun music you can find in any one spot. You’ve found Steve Riley and the Mamou Playboys."
