Get a Taste of Louisiana in Decatur

Annual Cajunfest returns to Ingalls Harbor June 14th.

It’s ragin’ Cajun time at Ingalls Harbor in Decatur, Ala. Set for June 14th along the banks of the Tennessee River, Cajunfest, featuring an authentic Cajun meal and live zydeco and Cajun music, allows party goers to experience a bit of Louisiana while serving as a fundraiser for the local chapter of the American Red Cross.

Hosted by the American Red Cross Morgan-Lawrence Chapter, Cajunfest gets started at 5 p.m. and lasts until 9 p.m. Authentic Cajun food will be freshly prepared and served by Roland’s Cajun Catering and includes a serving of crawfish, shrimp, potatoes, corn, chicken and sausage jambalaya and two drinks (Pepsi and Budweiser products). The shrimp and crawfish will be seasoned with all of the Louisiana traditions of fresh garlic, lemons, onions and other spices. 

A limited number of tickets are available now until June 7th and may be purchased at the Red Cross office located at 431 Holly Street, NE in Decatur. Office hours are Monday-Thursday 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and Friday 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Tickets are $25 each and will not be sold on the night of the event. Sponsored by BP, Joe Wheeler EMC, Housing Investors, Inc., Valley Budweiser, Air Products, Progress Bank and Trust, Bank Independent, and Pepsi Cola of Decatur, proceeds from Cajunfest benefit the Morgan-Lawrence Chapter of the American Red Cross.

Ingalls Harbor is located at 802 Wilson Street NW in Decatur. For more information on Cajunfest, call Beth Tutwiler at 256.353.4891.
