Bayou on the Bay: Blues & Zydeco Picnic in the Park

 What?
This one day festival celebrates the cultural connections Louisiana and Michigan share through music, food, and community leisure. The 10-piece Gabriel Brass Band (Detroit) and Luke Winslow-King (New Orleans) will be performing, and of course our hometown heroes, K Jones & the Benzie Playboys! We’ll have plenty of food this year- Louisiana cuisine made with Michigan ingredients including jambalaya, barbecue pork, blackened chicken kabobs, and a returning favorite from Hotel Frankfort: a cajun boil featuring andouli sausage, shrimp, crayfish, mussels, corn, and redskin potatoes.
All funds raised will benefit Grow Benzie’s community center and farmstead.
