  • La Poussiere

    1301 Grand Point Road
    Breaux Bridge, LA 70517 (SEE MAP)

    La Poussiere Cajun Dancehall was established over fifty (50) years ago on October 1, 1955 by the late Ovey J. Patin and Mary L. Patin.  The dancehall was labeled with the name “LA POUSSIERE” (the French word for “The Dust”) by the patrons who frequented the dancehall. After a night of foot stomping fun, which extended well into the early morning hours, the constant vibration of the hardwood resting on a dirt floor caused a noticeable accumulation of dust (POUSSIERE). In 1975, a major road construction project forced the demolition of the original dancehall and facilitated its move to the location where it still operates today.  La Poussiere offers to the general public an authentic Cajun Dancehall experience that showcases our Cajun music, language, and heritage. On Saturday nights and Sunday afternoons La Poussiere opens its doors to all for the unique Cajun experience.
