City of Eunice Tourism
Tourists from around the globe can always be found in the Cajun Prairie Capital of Eunice - international visitors are typical on Saturday nights. For almost 25 years, the world has flocked to the "Rendez-vous des Cajuns," a live radio and TV show held Saturday nights at the Liberty Theatre. The restored Vaudeville House, built in 1924, comes alive as Cajun country's answer to the Grand Ole Opry, Prairie Home Companion and the Louisiana Hayride. Nest to the Liberty Theatre , the Prairie Acadian Cultural Center, part of the Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Reserve, features exhibits, displays and craft and music workshops that demonstrate the story of the Cajun people who settled the prairie.
Other must-see sites in the neighborhood are the Eunice Depot Museum, site of the city's birth place, and the Cajun Music Hall of Fame and Museum. An unexpected find in the Nutcracker Museum, where hundreds of nutcrackers are on display. Many legends have signed the wall at the downtown radio station KBON 101.1 FM, a variety music station that features Cajun, zydeco, and swamp pop and artists. Musicians of all ages jam Saturday mornings at the Savoy Music Center, where Cajun accordions are made and shipped throughout the world.
