Festivals Acadiens et Créoles traces its roots back to the first Tribute to Cajun Music Festival organized by the Council for the Development of French in Louisiana (CODOFIL) in 1974. Festivals Acadiens et Créoles was officially established in 1977 as a series of festivals with components of music, food, and crafts, but was later condensed into a multiday event.
The massive celebration of Cajun culture operates as a nonprofit corporation and is run by a community board and volunteers.
