Photos in this collection were taken at the Roots Heritage Festival, April 16, 2011, and at evening dances on April 15, 18, and 21, plus one master presentation on April 19 during Louisiana Folk Roots Dewey Balfa Cajun and Creole Heritage Week, Chicot State Park, north of Ville Platte, LA.

Full-time campers participated in a week of classes, jam sessions, presentations, and other activities. The photos in this collection depict only the day-long festival on Saturday and three of the evening dances, which attracted many locals from nearby towns in addition to the campers, who came from all over the country and from overseas.
