Beausoleil Day

Fete to Honor 250th Anniversary of Acadian Arrival



Expelled from their home in Acadie, 202 refugees later to become known as Cajuns arrived in New Orleans 250 years ago. On Saturday (2.21), a program of readings, music, dance, and food at the Old U.S. Mint will commemorate that arrival at 2:30p.m.


Today in NOLA: 6.15.14


Take in the second day of the Cajun-Zydeco Festival in Armstrong Park today, or relive your high school punk days with MxPx at One Eyed Jacks. On this day in 1910, Louisiana created Evangeline Parish, naming it after Henry Wadsworth Longfellow's epic poem about a young Acadian woman. More tonight:
