Zydeco

The CZ Mission

Cascade Zydeco is a 501(c)3 non-profit association dedicated to building and sustaining Zydeco, Cajun, and other Louisiana music and dancing in our community.


Zydeco Wednesdays

Cascade Zydeco hosts friendly, welcoming DJ dances and at live music events on Wednesday nights. We start with a basic zydeco lesson (or sometimes blues or waltz), followed by dancing. Great for beginners and experienced dancers, no need to bring a partner. Drop in once, become a regular! Join Cascade Zydeco for live band events with some of the best local talent you'll find anywhere, plus special events with traveling Zydeco talent from other cities. Watch the calendar for the next dance!
