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.
Cascade Zydeco hosts friendly, welcoming DJ dances and at least twice-a-month live music 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!
Sunday Zydeco in Vancouver, hosted for many years by Penny Holeman and Phil Coquillette, is coming to an end. May 27th will be the last one. Join us for cake and a big thank you to Penny and Phil for 10 years of sweet music and dancing.
