Lundi Gras Boucherie in Louisiana

Submitted by on February 5, 2020 – 8:04 amNo Comment

Lundi Gras Boucherie, Eunice, LouisianaIt’s said that the best way to taste Louisiana is at an old time boucherie. The Lundi Gras Boucherie features dishes prepared by Acadiana’s best chefs. The event takes place every year in Eunice, Louisiana, on the Monday before Mardi Gras/Fat Tuesday. This year, that’s February 24, 2020.

This long-running tradition, organizers say, began as a way to survive the winter months with plenty of meat.

Today, it is a community celebration that begins early in the morning with the butchering of the hog (set for 8 a.m.). The meat is then prepared for dishes such as boudin, boudin rouge, cracklins, backbone stew, and ponce. Nothing goes to waste – even the ears of the hog are used to make hogshead cheese, something similar to a terrine.

This event is hosted by Lakeview Park & Beach, 1717 Veterans Memorial Highway, Eunice, Louisiana. where it takes place.

All day and night, Cajun and zydeco music bands play in the barn-turned-dancehall. There is not an admission fee for this event, but you will need to purchase tickets from the bar in order to sample dishes. Beer and other adult beverages are available at the bar inside the barn.
