Family & Friends

The 80th annual Louisiana Shrimp & Petroleum Festival is a great reason to gather friends and family who haven’t been home to visit recently.
Louisiana’s oldest chartered harvest festival is scheduled this upcoming Labor Day Weekend, September 3-7, 2015. The festival will be held in Morgan City, only 90 miles from New Orleans, Baton Rouge and Lafayette.
Most festivities are held within the beautiful Downtown Historic District and are free to the general public. Great food, continuous free live music, traditional events, children’s activities as well as new events will highlight this five-day extravaganza.
The Cajun Coast has a wealth of accommodations to suit your needs. Check out each of the links to learn about promotions local hotels are offering exclusively for festival guests.
