The Museum hosts a monthly Cajun Jam on the 3rd Sunday of every month from 3:00 PM - 5:00 PM.  Jam sessions are open for any musician to join in to play traditional Louisiana songs. 

As part of its cultural offerings, the West Baton Rouge Museum is hosting this program to allow musicians to informally play acoustic instruments including fiddle, accordion, guitar, washboard, triangle, and double bass. No amps, please. To insure the health and safety of all visitors, musicians and visitors alike should bring their own lawn chairs, masks, and refreshments. This program is FREE and open to the public. 

Le Jam is sponsored by the Baton Rouge Chapter of the Cajun French Music Association. The program welcomes all Cajun musicians, dancers and fans to this free monthly event.  The CFMA is dedicated to the promotion and preservation of our Cajun music, dance, language, and heritage.
