Pre-FAM Tour

A Crash Course in Cajun

What defines a Cajun? Traditionally, Cajuns were French-speaking Acadians from eastern Canada who were expelled by the British in 1755 and eventually settled in southern Louisiana. Today, their culture remains a vibrant part of Louisiana and is celebrated in different ways. Explore what it means to be Cajun as we travel from Louisiana’s Cajun Coast to Lafayette Cajun Country. Experience the stories and flavors of Cajun culture, and dance the night away to the sounds of the accordion at the “fais do do”. You’ll leave with the “Joie de Vivre” that you can get only in south Louisiana. Allons-y, Cher!

*All pre-FAM’s require light to moderate walking and climbing a flight of stairs.
