A Taste of New Orleans
This Memorial Day Weekend will give you an opportunity to eat tasty food, listen to soulful music, and donate your hard-earned funds to great causes. The Rotary Club of Simi Sunrise will present their 30th rendition of the Simi Valley Cajun & Blues Festival. I am personally a huge fan of Cajun food and enjoy the prospect of munching on some Gumbo and Jambalaya. I am not as well-versed when it comes to the Blues, but if there was ever a good opportunity to check it out, this would be it.
They definitely know their food, music, and parties down in New Orleans. This weekend will find a bit of New Orleans in Simi Valley. Whether you have the same palate as myself or are more inclined for their funnel cake and kettle corn, you’ll find something delicious to eat. And while you stuff your face with food, live music will be covering the event grounds.
Musical performers at the Cajun & Blues Festival will include Jefferson Starship, Spin Doctors, and 3 Sista Blues. In addition, the event also features a Mardi Gras Parade each day and special New Orleans inspired Arts & Crafts. The whole family will have something to enjoy this weekend.

A Perfect Memorial Day Event
Head down to Simi Valley this weekend if you want to check out a unique Memorial Day Weekend experience. The Simi Valley Cajun & Blues Festival begins today and concludes tomorrow. There is still plenty of time to make your way over to Rancho Santa Susana Community Park for some Cajun cuisine and a bit of New Orleans’ culture. First of all, I’m personally a huge fan of Cajun food, if gumbo and jambalaya are being served–i’m there. Therefore, researching this event is literally making my mouth water. However, even beyond the tasty food, there is a whole bit of New Orleans culture that people can check out. While I’ve never personally been to New Orleans, it certainly has the reputation of having a strong. unique culture.
A sizable list of musical guests await event-goers this weekend. Eddie Money and Dave Mason will be headlining the event and certainly bringing down the house with their unique musical styling. Dave Mason is best known for his soulful voice and unsurpassed guitar playing, Dave was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame as a founding member of the group Traffic.
Eddie Money, after signing a recording contract with Columbia Records,burst onto the scene with his debut album in 1977. Fans immediately fell in love with the album, which went double platinum. That album featured hits like “Baby Hold On” and “Two Tickets to Paradise.”
