A Taste of Louisiana in San Diego

Hosted by San Diego’s Bon Temps Social Club, Gator By The Bay has been a staple of the city’s cultural scene since 2001. Set against the stunning backdrop of San Diego Bay, this festival transports attendees straight to the bayous of Louisiana with its authentic atmosphere and vibrant entertainment.

Live Music Galore

Prepare to be serenaded by over 100 musical acts spread across seven stages throughout the festival grounds. From traditional Cajun and zydeco tunes to blues, jazz, and beyond, there’s something to satisfy every musical palate. Whether you’re tapping your feet to the infectious rhythms or cutting a rug on the dance floor, the music at Gator By The Bay will keep you grooving all weekend long.

Culinary Delights

No Louisiana-themed festival would be complete without mouthwatering Southern cuisine, and Gator By The Bay delivers in spades. Feast on a smorgasbord of delectable dishes, including the festival’s pièce de résistance: 10,000 pounds of crawfish shipped fresh from the bayous of Louisiana. From jambalaya and gumbo to po’boys and beignets, prepare your taste buds for a flavor-packed journey through the culinary traditions of the South.
