Each year in early April, James Island puts on the Lowcountry Cajun Festival and brings a little bit of Louisiana to the Lowcountry through a family-friendly event celebrating all things Cajun and Creole.
Enjoy Cajun and Creole Culture, Cuisine, Music, and More at the Lowcountry Cajun Festival
During the Lowcountry Cajun Festival, you and your guests can indulge in authentic Creole and Cajun dishes, such as crawfish, etoufee, jambalaya, Andouille sausage, and alligator, alongside classic Lowcountry fare like barbeque and fresh seafood, as well as fair favorites like hotdogs and sno cones. After sampling all of the delicious foods that this festival has to offer, you can enjoy kids’ activities, carnival-style rides and games, Zydeco music, and crawfish eating contests.
While this James Island cajun festival is a family-friendly event, you’ll want to leave your 4-legged family members at home; pets are not permitted.
Admission for the Lowcountry Cajun Festival is $15.00 per person. Children ages 12 years or younger are admitted for free, as are Gold Pass parks members with a valid Gold Pass. It’s recommended that festival attendees come prepared with cash, as checks are not accepted and credit cards are only taken at select locations. There is an ATM on site in case you forget, however.
The festival is held from 12:00pm to 6:00pm at James Island County Park, located at 871 Riverland Dr., Charleston, SC 29412. You can also learn more information about the Lowcountry Cajun Festival by calling (843) 795-4386, emailing [email protected], or speaking with one of our representatives at Exclusive Properties.
