The Taste of Orleans festival at California's Great America returns for its fifth year this summer! Featuring authentic Cajun food, live jazz music, and decor right in the heart of the park's Orleans Place, Taste of Orleans pairs Cajun flavors with California thrills.
Big Easy Fun!
Enjoy tasty regional Cajun cuisine, like chicken and sausage gumbo, Louisiana Chicken Wings, Alligator Chowder, Catfish Sliders, Blackeye Pea and Kale Hushpuppies, beignets, and more! Exciting live jazz and Cajun bands roam the festival throughout the day. And the colorful Cajun festival closes each evening with a themed firework show over the skies of Orleans Place, all set to Cajun music. It's the perfect way to end your day of Mardi Gras fun in July at California's Great America.
Join in the revelry as Orleans Place comes to life with a lively, Cajun festival atmosphere! Two alternating stages near Rue le Dodge and Flight Deck will feature live music from sun up to sun down.
Enjoy limited time Cajun food and drink samples with a Taste of Orleans tasting card. Purchase a food tasting card for either 6 or 9 tastings online or in the park. Separate beer and wine tasting cards offering 6 sips can also be purchased online or in the park.
When the sun goes down, Taste of Orleans is just starting to heat up! Stick around past sunset to catch an incredible firework display at 9:45pm each night of the festival.
