When the Masquerade Ball ends on Saturday night, the Cajun fun begins with a family-friendly all-day food festival, concert and celebration!

The Krewe of Charleston is proud to present the first Fais Do Do on the Atlantic Coast.
Catch beads and boas. Marvel at a grand Mardi Gras float. Eat fried alligator, boiled crawfish, Shrimp Po’ Boys, crawfish etouffee — and experience a true Louisiana pig roast.

And, of course, meet the new King & Queen of Charleston. Dance to the music of world renowned Rockin’ Dopsie and the Zydeco Twisters! Laissez les bon temps rouler!

Come and participate in the gumbo cookoff, win prizes and be crowned the King or Queen of the Festival!
