Dust off your dancin’ shoes and get ready for Midtown Crossing’s sixth-annual Zydeco Festival. Back by popular demand, this crowd-pleasing, foot-stompin’, free event is the only festival of its kind in the region and takes place in Omaha’s most iconic, scenic outdoor venue – Turner Park.
This year’s day-long celebration connects you to the Creole culture, bringing you high energy Zydeco music from local and southern artists playing their fiddles, accordions, guitars and even their washboards. Omaha’s local favorite, The Prairie Gators will be kicking off the day, getting the party started. Headliner Rosie Ledet and the Zydeco Gs will be kicking things up a notch and giving fans a true taste of authentic Zydeco music.
With the NEW Grab & Go Zydeco, splurge on fan-favorite, southern-style dishes like muffuletta pizza, Cajun tacos and jambalaya. And take advantage of Turner Park’s NEW Beer Garden on the Farnam Patio, encompassing Smokin’ Oak, Pa Mas, Proof and Ray’s. Grab a friend and relax outdoors, on the patio, with a cool beverage. It’s an afternoon you’ve been waiting for, right in the heart of Omaha.
This festival is free, open to the public, and as always, family- and dog-friendly – and perfect for friends, co-workers and families.
