The Simi Valley Cajun & Blues Music Festival, now in its 23rd year, has continually evolved since its humble beginnings. The Festival started out in 1988 as a New England Clambake fundraiser for the Rotary Club of Simi Sunrise, and within two years the Cajun Creole music theme was adopted. The Cajun theme proved to be very popular as the Festival gained national attention and grew to be one of the largest festivals of its kind west of the Mississippi River. The Festival currently presents live Cajun, Creole, Zydeco and Blues entertainment on multiple stages, offers more than 150 food, beverage, craft and sponsor booths, and attracts approximately 15,000 attendees. One hundred percent of all Festival profits are donated in support of charitable, educational and humanitarian causes. Thanks to the generous and vital support of our corporate partners, profits from The Simi Valley Cajun & Blues Music Festival have resulted in total charitable donations in excess of $ 1,500,000.

Simi Valley Cajun & Blues Music Festival is an annual event hosted by the The Rotary Club of Simi Sunrise to benefit both Cajun heritage and the people of Simi Valley and surrounding areas. All proceeds from the event go to charities.

The Cajun & Blues Kids Area has exploded over the last few years! In addition to the many bouncers, rock climbing walls, slides and gyroscopes, there is a Kids’ Craft Area where kids can make their own crafts.

This family friendly event has a giant kids area featuring bouncers, rock walls, specialty acts, crafts and talent shows.

So much food to choose from, even the pickiest eater will love the food! Enjoy authentic Cajun-Creole food such as jambalaya and crawfish — BBQ sandwiches and hot dogs are also popular! Funnel cake, fruit smoothies, and kettle corn will satisfy that sweet tooth! Check out all the food booths and enjoy fantastic food while listening to the music!

Stroll through rows of craft vendors and be surprised by the treasures you will find! From clothes, purses, crafts and pottery, to jewelry, toys, posters and hats. Homemade salsas, salt water taffy, and unique crafts. There is something for everyone!
