The Cane River Zydeco Festival began in 1999 by members of the Magnolia State Police Officers Association, Cane River Branch. The Magnolia State Peace Officer’s Association is the state wide organization that started the Toys for Tots program. They also help the community through other various programs such as community service,  Shop with a Cop, food baskets and preparing Thanksgiving dinners for underprivileged families.  Proceeds from this event assist in funding various community functions around Natchitoches Parish.

Thanks to our sponsors for making this event happen.
