JEAN LAFITTE, La. –After fifteen years, the Jean Lafitte Seafood Festival returns to the Town of Jean Lafitte June 25-27, 2021, at Jean Lafitte Auditorium and Grounds, 4953 City Park St in Jean Lafitte.

“When you think about Jean Lafitte, you think of the amazing seafood that comes from our coast,” said Jean Lafitte Mayor Tim Kerner, Jr. “We wanted to bring this festival back to celebrate the seafood, music, culture and arts of South Louisiana. This is going to be the beginning of something great for this area.”

The festival will include a line-up of musicians, local seafood and food for sale, carnival rides and an arts walk where artists will display and sell their art.
