10:30 AM Gator by the Bay Festival San Diego's annual "Gator By The Bay," the largest, most-authentic Louisiana-themed music and food festival this side of the bayou!

Presented by the Bon Temps Social Club of San Diego, this celebration features four days of live music with more than 100 musical acts and special performances on seven stages as well as a delicious array of southern cuisine, including 10,000 pounds of fresh crawfish trucked all the way from Opelousas, Louisiana!

Since its inception in 2001, the festival has grown to showcase a diverse selection of music genres including blues, salsa, Zydeco, Cajun and country. The festival boasts five wooden dance floors, including two 3,000 square foot shaded dance floors at each of the two main stages.

Family Fun: Special family fun activities include the costumed Mardi Gras parades, outrageous hat-making with the Rad Hatter and colorful face painting. To learn all about family fun at Gator by the Bay, visit our website.

Food: Attendees can indulge their palates in Louisiana-raised crawfish, boudin sausage, catfish, alligator, barbecue and oysters from vendors in The French Quarter Food Court.

Kick-Off Show: Gator by the Bay will kick off on Thursday at 6:00 PM with a concert double-headlined by blues vocalist Shana Morrison and Louisiana-bred Sonny Landreth. Morrison, who started her career in her father, Van Morrison's, band is known for musical stylings of pop with a side of blues and rock. Landreth, known as "King of Slydeco," is one of the most advanced guitarists of our time and has developed a unique style that has captivated audiences across the world.
