This is the 26th year for the Marshland Festival in Lake Charles, Louisiana featuring country, Cajun, oldies and Zydeco music.  The Marshland Festival Association was formed to allow local youth organizations to safely raise funds, while also celebrating the Louisiana heritage of Cajun music and cuisine, supporting the local tourism industry, and supporting local businesses.  Bands will play from 6 p.m. to midnight on July 24, and from 11 a.m. until midnight July 25.  Cost of admission is $10 on Friday, and $15 on Saturday.
