The Louisiana Swamp Exhibit is where is all started. It was the inspiration for the Louisiana Swamp Fest and central point for meeting Swamp Creatures - two and four legged kinds. Audubon Zoo's Louisiana Swamp Exhibit is the most authentic swamp exhibit in Louisiana.
The Cajun Heritage Demonstrations is a special attraction of the Louisiana Swamp Festival.
This attraction gives visitors the opportunity to learn about the preservation of a culture-the Cajun culture of Louisiana. Visitors participate in daily presentations encompassing storytelling, boat making, wood carving, castnet knitting, weaving, doll making and more. Local and regional Louisiana natives demonstrate their generations-old lifestyle elements. Basket weavers weave functional and beautiful creations. Wood carvers make decoys as well as instruct.
