Who dat? This fest is the real deal, y’all. Having originated in Louisiana, they weren’t born here but got to Texas as fast as they could, and now The Taste of Louisiana Festival is celebrating its fifth year. “The theme this year is ‘Made in Louisiana,’” says Joaquin Trent, event coordinator. “It’s pretty much 360 degrees of Louisiana: the culture, the food, the music.” He says they’ve got sessions on Zydeco, Creole and second line culture at 3 and 5 p.m., a main stage that looks like a parade float, Mardi Gras beverages and tons of shopping. “This year we have our French Market with spices, soaps; all the wonderful things you can buy like pralines, Louisiana baked pie.” Don’t miss the Second Line performance at 7 p.m. and a “Bake, Boil and Fry” cook-off in the Chef’s Corner (our money is on fry).

1 to 9 p.m. Saturday. Constellation Field, One Stadium Drive, Sugar Land. For information, visit thetasteoflouisiana.com. $10 to $20.

[Organizer's Description:]

Join us as we celebrate the 5th Anniversary of The Taste of Louisiana Festival and enjoy a day of Food, Music, and Culture that reminds you of what we know simply as home, and others know as Louisiana. We appropriately named this event "Made in Louisiana" to pay respect to our humble Louisiana beginnings back in 2010. "Made in Louisiana" gives our event goers a 360 experience of the Louisiana culture, music, and food, available in one place. The Taste of Louisiana Festival has it all, from the food court's spicy aroma of boiling crawfish, to the mouthwatering smell that reminds you of something frying in grandma's kitchen that brings you back home to Louisiana. Our menu of traditional and fusion foods from our vendors will have your taste buds dancing. Also, remember the times when grandma taught you how to make her famous dish from scratch? Our Chef's Corner gives you free lessons on how to whip up some of the famous dishes which Louisiana is known. Looking for homebaked goods, homemade Louisiana spices, art, or jewelry and more? Visit our French Market for all your needs. Don't forget about the sweet sound of the accordion or the infectious sound of the brass band horns filling the air to keep you dancing all day and night. Catch the variety of entertainment including our Second line at the Bourbon Street Stage.
