Cascade Zydeco is a 501(c)3 Non-Profit Association dedicated to bringing Zydeco and Cajun music and dance to our community.
(June 24th & July 8th will be at the Lehrer Pub with a live band! -- see story to right....)
When we don't have a live band, Cascade Zydeco hosts a friendly, welcoming DJ dance every Wednesday at
3832 N Interstate Avenue
Dance on a beautiful floor at Polish Hall and enjoy the ample off street parking around the back of the building.
No partner required! Zydeco dancers change partners after almost every song. Ask anyone to dance! Bring your own water bottle or soft drinks or buy bottled water there for $1.

The best on-line resource for Portland dance information now lists Cajun/Zydeco events under the letter Z !
Get your Zydeco Buddy Pass (it's good for the whole festival, not just Zydeco!) for the Waterfront Blues Festival for $85. Passes are now available through Ticket Tomato at tickettomato.com. The Zydeco Buddy Pass entitles you to: 1. early entry to the festival each day, 30 minutes before the crowds get in, 2. unlimited exit & re-entry any time, even if the gates are closed due to overcrowding, and 3. free entry for after hours music in the Marriot Hotel Ballroom (Chubby will be playing!). Other passes are available at the Blues Fest site, but the Zydeco Buddy Pass is only available through this link.
Wednesday, July 1st, CZ will hold our regular Wednesday night CD dance at Polish Hall, but with a twist. No lesson, potluck starting at 6:30 and dancing 'til 10.
