The 22nd Annual Simi Valley Cajun & Blues Music Festival will be held on Saturday and Sunday of Memorial Day weekend, May 28th & 29th, 2011.

2011 promises to continue our tradition of bringing fans a full weekend of nonstop award-winning entertainment, more food choices than you can sample in two days, and activities to keep kids of all ages entertained too.

The first stage will feature 9 hours of continuous music each day.  Featured will be international and award winning Cajun, Creole and Zydeco music acts.

The second stage will feature the Delta Groove All-Star Blues Revue on Saturday and world-class blues and roots acts on Sunday.

Both stages feature lots of viewing space plus large dance floors.

In addition, this family friendly event has a giant kids area featuring bouncers, rock walls, specialty acts, crafts and talent shows.  There are also food booths and many crafts and merchandise booths.
