Samedi means Saturday in French, hence the name Samedi Gras. Participants can enjoy wine tasting, music, dancing, king cake, masks, festive beads, a costume contest and a selection of authentic Cajun and creole food. For this year’s event, Breaux Vineyards has partnered with Sweet NOLA’s to provide jambalaya, gumbo, alligator bombs, Andouille sausage bombs, king cakes, beans and rice, jalapeno slaw, creole potato salad and a vegetarian option. Cheryl Ash, the owner of Sweet NOLA’s, will be on-site preparing her famous chicken and Andouille gumbo.
Zachary Smith and The Dixie Power Trio will be providing the music for the celebration. The Dixie Trio Band has been performing on the East Coast for more than twenty years, earning them a reputation as the East Coast’s premier “Louisiana variety band”. The band plays a unique mix of zydeco, Cajun, New Orleans jazz and funk.
