After being cancelled in 2020 due to COVID-19, Cajunfest will return this year. Defined by its outstanding Cajun music, food, and fun, this annual event held at Amber Falls Winery & Cellars is scheduled for 12-8pm on Saturday, May 29th. Held on the Saturday before Memorial Day, it is a day that has the toe-tapping tunes unique to South Louisiana echoing off the scenic hills and ridges of Hampshire, TN and draws almost 1,500 people from more than a dozen states. They come for the authentic Cajun music and the outstanding Cajun foods prepared by some of the best cooks South Louisiana has to offer.
Cajunfest 2021 is presented by Crescendo Sponsor Farm Bureau Insurance of Tennessee. The event generously benefits Boys & Girls Clubs of South Central Tennessee.
Guests will enjoy the music of two outstanding bands, headliner Wayne & Same ‘Ol 2 Step and the Roux du Bayou Cajun Band.
Wayne & Same ‘Ol 2 Step keeps their music firmly grounded in the style of traditional Zydeco. Wayne Singleton, founder of the band, has toured and played throughout the United States and in Europe.
Roux du Bayou Cajun Band is based out of Nashville and plays authentic cajun, zydeco, swamp pop, and mardi gras music.
In addition to the music, Cajunfest serves up award-winning wines and authentic Cajun foods –boiled crawfish, boudin, jambalaya, and fried alligator—all while raising funds to benefit Boys & Girls Clubs of South Central Tennessee.
