Get ready to dive deep into Cajun culture with a good ole Cajun Swamp Pop Honky Tonk Dance featuring The Revelers, on May 9, 2015 at the USO Building in Fort Worden.
Admission is $10 at the door, and we’ll get the party started at 7:30pm. Yes – there will be a beer garden!
The dance is the culmination of Kitchen Culture – an authentic Cajun culinary, music and dance event taking place May 6-10, 2015, at Fort Worden. The gathering is guided by Southwest Louisiana food gurus Toby Rodriguez and Bryan Kyzer; Louisiana’s award-winning music supergroup The Revelers; and hot two-stepping duo Corey Porche and Sally Freund.
Not everyone can book a trip Louisiana to discover this. That’s why Kitchen Culture is bringing it to you.
Kitchen Culture combines the music, food and dances of Louisiana, a trinity of creativity and a way of life, established in the hearts and souls of its people since day one, says Chas Justus, of The Revelers. It is a culture existing in context with each element feeding off the other, not fulfilling its calling individually but existing for one another, making each other shine.
TA few spaces are still available for the Kitchen Culture workshops. Kitchen Culture is for foodies, musicians, & dancers, with dedicated works tracks for each.
Food: We will create an authentic boucherie at Fort Worden, guided by Toby Rodriguez and Bryan Kyzer from Southwest Louisiana. If you are looking for authentic Cajun culinary instruction, are committed to the farm-to-table movement, and interested in locally-sourced food, Kitchen Culture is for you.
