It's finally here, the start of the 2021 Cajun Heartland State Fair. The festival grounds will open today at 5:00 pm, and for the next 11 days, we can all enjoy the rides, games, food, and more.

And new to the State Fair this year is the addition of the Cajun Heartland Music Festival inside the Cajundome.

The party gets kicked off tonight with legendary country group Diamond Rio along with guests Lainey Wilson and Blaine Roy.


If you are coming out to the concert, we have a few things you should know before you head to the show.


It's free. Just park at Cajun Field and head through the tunnel to the Cajundome.
