Cajun and Zydeco Dance Events

Your Source for Cajun-Zydeco Dancing in Florida

Welcome to FloridaCajunZydeco, a website dedicated to people who love to dance to Louisiana-style music. This site features a calendar page of Cajun and Zydeco dance bands and events in the state of Florida, and a "Festival-O-Rama" page of major Cajun and Zydeco events anywhere in the United States -- even Louisiana!  Also check out "The Story" page where a different Cajun or zydeco band is featured each month.

As they say in French-speaking Louisiana, "Laissez les bons temps rouler!" ("Let the good times roll!") And in the spirit of the dance community that embraces this joyful music, "If you're smiling, you're doing it right!"
