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!"

Tues. Oct. 17, 2017 --- Cajun Zydeco Dance (Downtown St. Pete)

Good mix of danceable music by Cajun and zydeco artists singing about death, divorce, drinking and dancing. Dance all night, stay a little longer. We're in the lounge with a wood dance floor at Caddy's. It's around the corner from Ringside Cafe and Jannus Landing. Parking on Central Ave. is free after 8 p.m. (just changed from 6 p.m. a few weeks ago. However, meters on some cross streets say "9 a.m. to 6 p.m." Check your meter for hours). Bring some quarters for the meter, or park in in one of the parking garages within a couple blocks. Sundial Garage still just $1. No cover charge and drink specials the first hour. Great food. I can recommend the fish tacos and shrimp appetizer and the key lime pie. Stop by and let your hair down.
