The Taste of Orleans festival at California's Great America returns for its third year this July! Featuring authentic Orleans food, live music, and decor right in the heart of the park's Orleans Place area, Taste of Orleans pairs Cajun flavors with California thrills.
Orleans Comes to Life!
Foodies enjoy tasty regional Cajun cuisine, like chicken gumbo, shrimp po'boys, muffuletta pizza, beignets, crawfish etouffee, and new for 2018: alligator bites with Creole dipping sauce. Exciting jazz and cajun bands roam the festival throughout the day, and chalk artists paint Mardi Gras murals all across the midway. The colorful cajun festival closes each evening with a light show down the midway and a Taste of Orleans fireworks show set to Cajun music. It's the perfect way to end your Orleans day at California's Great America.
