After fifteen years, the Jean Lafitte Seafood Festival returns to the Town of Jean Lafitte June 25-27, 2021. "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. The event space includes the Barataria Museum and the town's Wetland Trace, a boardwalk trail through a 41-acre cypress swamp nature preserve. Swamp Tours will also be offered leaving from the Wetland Trace.
