 Shake Your Trail Feather Festival
Time: begin at 11:30

The festival theme this year is “Woo Loves the Bayou?” The Heritage Tent, will have a discussion on nocturnal animals (owls and bats) found along the Teche by Kyle Patton, Manager of the Acadiana Nature Station. There will also be a workshop on managing bat boxes and wood duck nest boxes. There will be artisans selling their wares, and partner organizations (New Acadia Project, Bayou Teche Water Sentinels, Bayou Vermilion District, Acadiana Native Plant Project, and Tour du Teche) will be onsite to provide educational information and demonstrations about the various projects taking place in the area.

Concert performances will include the St. Bernard School French Musicians (11:30 a.m.-12:15 p.m., Heritage Tent), Stop the Clock (noon-1:30 p.m.), Steve Riley and the Mamou Playboys (2-3:30 p.m.) and Horace Trahan and the Ossun Express (4-6 p.m.).

At this festival, you can make your journey to the event as much fun as your stay! Cajun Paddle will be partnering by hosting a “Paddle to the Party” float trip. Kayaks, canoes, and paddle boats will parade from Poche Bridge to the festival grounds with a floating band escort, and this year, they will have a shuttle service for paddlers. In addition, The TECHE Project is hosting the “Trail Feathers” bike event. There is also a combined peddle and paddle to the party option that is very popular with recreationalists.
