Kent’s first ever Cajun Fest is TODAY – Saturday August 20th!


The Kent Downtown Partnership’s first ever Kent Cajun Food and Music Fest is TODAY – Saturday August 20, 2022!

This great event will take place from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m.

They have teamed up with one of Kent’s regionally renowned establishments – Altha’s Louisiana Cajun Seasonings – to host the first-ever event of its kind and the biggest party of the summer in the downtown community.

“You don’t have to travel deep into the heart of Cajun country to find great music, authentic Cajun food, and good old-fashioned soul entertainment,” KDP said. “Actually, it’s closer than you think. Dance, dine and have a Cajun good time where Southern culture and hospitality transform historic downtown Kent into our very own little Louisiana!”

This event will feature a true Zydeco lineup with Zydeco Lowdown, Bayou Envie and Swamp Soul along with the sharp guitar, power vocals, funky licks and ‘slop jar delta funk’ blues of Nick Vigarinos’ Meantown Blues. The Jukebox Jamzz marching band will also be there to cheer up the crowd and liven up our 2nd Line parade.

The event will take place outdoors in Burlington Green Park in historic Kent town centre. Along with the amazing music lineup, you’ll find an iced beer garden sponsored by Half Lion Brewing, food by Crawfish King, Po Boy n’ Tings, Where You At Matt and more! Guests can also expect local and regional performers/vendors and activities to keep the kids entertained.

The Cajun Fest is a free-for-all event. Dress up in Marti Gras/New Orleans themed costumes encouraged! Bring your blankets and chairs and head to Burlington Green Park at 299 Railroad Ave N., Kent.
