Scott Boudin Festival

Nestled in the heart of South Louisiana, Scott has held the title “Boudin Capital of the World” since it earned the moniker from the Louisiana Legislature in 2012. Renowned for its Scott Boudin Festival, this small city pulses with the spirit of Cajun culinary tradition, thanks to the local boudin artisans at places like Don’s Specialty Meats and other notable establishments.

Over a decade, the Scott Boudin Festival has blossomed into an acclaimed event celebrated locally and across the region. It has earned consecutive accolades for its cultural vibrancy. Supported by local businesses, the festival is a tapestry of community collaboration.

Boudin, the quintessential Cajun delicacy, often features a mouth-watering mixture of pork, rice, onions, and a melody of spices encased in a sausage skin. Adventurous tastes have led to innovative variations, incorporating ingredients like crawfish, shrimp, and even vegetables for a modern twist. This beloved sausage showcases its versatility in dishes ranging from fried boudin balls to savory stuffed pastries.

The festival isn’t just a feast for the taste buds; it’s a carnival of family entertainment. Attendees are treated to a spread of South Louisiana’s finest music, a spectrum of fun rides for all ages, spectacular fireworks, and an exhibition of unique arts and crafts. Revenues from the festival fuel various charitable causes and community improvements.

Make sure to mark your calendars for April 5-7, 2024, for an authentic Cajun celebration at the Scott Boudin Festival! Don’s Specialty Meats will be serving up tons of boudin and other delicious menu items throughout the festival, so come see us!
