If you’ve never been to a music festival set on an alligator farm before, T-Bois Blues Festival might be your only chance. The 7th Annual festival takes place March 17th through March 19th on a crawfish and alligator farm in Larose, Louisiana. Beginning on that Thursday night at 7 PM, this year’s lineup includes fan favorites like singer-songwriter Anders Osborne, jazz-soul artist Nigel Hall, harmonica player Jason Ricci, blues singer Carolyn Wonderland, and Grammy-nominated Cajun music band the Lost Bayou Ramblers, among other foot-stomping, knee-shaking talent. To ensure that guests will be able to see all their favorites and more, the festival works with just two rotating stages to support nearly 25 musicians. The signature activity concluding the event on Saturday night is the ceremonious burning of “Big Al”, the 30-foot tall wooden alligator built by the non-profit burner community of New Orleans who assist with artistic projects like Burning Man.
In addition to the music and wooden alligator burning, T-Bois Blues Festival will have NOLA Brewing Company beer, gourmet Cajun cooking, a ticket to the crawfish boiling and festival merch included in the ticket price, depending on if patrons choose general admission or VIP. For those who want to remain on the 2,000 acres of marshland property for the length of the festival but don’t want to camp primitively, a limited number of RVs can be rented.
For three days, enjoy the natural sounds of the Louisiana bayou, eat authentic Cajun cooking, and listen to 23 of the area’s best blues, soul, jazz, and roots artists at T-Bois Blues Festival this March. Get your tickets here and see the full line-up below:
