Grand RéVEIL ACADIEN 2020

GRA 2020 is a multi-parish experience celebrating the lasting cultural impact of the Acadian people. Daily events will be held from October 3rd through October 12th, 2020 in 5 parishes across South Louisiana. Started in 2011, this event has been held every five years since. The purpose of this event is to encourage Acadians from around the world to continue to advance our unique lifestyle through shared memories, French speaking events, bonding and fellowship over Cajun food and music, and the general celebration of our shared culture.

Experience CAJUN CULTURE FROM OUR PERSPECTIVE

Because our festival is held over the course of several days and throughout several parishes, you will come to see that there is no singular trait that makes an Acadian. Every small town and every big city has a different story to tell, and all of their people have their own sub cultures, accents, cooking styles, and pastimes. If you ever wondered what “Cajun” really means, there is no more comprehensive way to partake in this unique culture so completely and authentically.
