Zydeco Kingdom

Travelers and artists from all over descend on Opelousas, Louisiana, for its annual celebration

Over the weekend, clubs like Richard's (pronounced "Ree-shards") in Lawtell, just west of Opelousas, and El Sido's in Lafayette, the area's hub city, will also be hopping. And on Sunday Richard's mounts its own minifestival. Weather permitting, it will be held outdoors next to the club. The lineup at press time was still shifting. But that doesn't matter. Whoever shows up will make the affair feel like a multiracial family reunion.

Locals like J. Paul Jr. and the Zydeco Newbreeds and Step Rideau (pictured) and the Zydeco Outlaws are right at home at Opelousas's Zydeco Fest.
