Rajun' Cajun Throwdown

Save the Date for 2023!!

  Annual Rajun’ Cajun Throwdown 
 Saturday, March 11th, 2023 Davis Street, Downtown Luling

It’s Rajun Cajun Throwdown and Gumbo Cookoff time again!  These are unprecedented times for sure, and although our last two events were cancelled, Luling Main Street is still forging ahead with plans to come back strong with our upcoming Rajun’ Cajun Throwdown and Gumbo Cookoff on Saturday March 12, 2022. Our amazing team of volunteers from this community is already working hard to make this upcoming event a success, and we are hopeful that 2022 starts to see some normalcy.

Luling Mainstreet’s annual Rajun’ Cajun Throwdown event raises funds to continue our mission of beautification and revitalization of the Main Street District.  Although the 2020 and 2021 Rajun’ Cajun Throwdown events were both cancelled due to the ongoing pandemic, in 2021 we still paid out two façade grants, helped add a new downtown flag pole, and added several new lighted Christmas pole signs to help spruce up the main thoroughfares around town. We foresee paying out several new façade grants in the coming months with all the new growth coming this way, and we also hope to tackle some new beautification projects with funds from this upcoming event.

The Rajun Cajun Throwdown is our main fundraiser for the year and we hope you will consider one of the following available sponsorship levels in this packet.  With your help and ongoing support, we can continue to make this event better each year while helping to revitalize the Luling Main Street District.

Luling Main Street was established in 2003 in an effort to revitalize Luling’s downtown area. 
Downtown revitalization is a key tool for enhancing the economic and social health of a community. Not only is it the most visible indicator of community pride and economic health, the historic downtown is also the foundation of a community’s heritage. The historic buildings in a downtown are prime locations for the establishment of unique businesses and can also be wonderful tourist attractors, all of which add to thecommunity’s sales tax collections and property values. Today big-box developments fill our nation, making it even more important for communities like ours to be proactive in saving and utilizing their historic spaces to avoid becoming featureless places.

If you should have any questions about sponsorships, or need any additional information, please contact Derek Hall at 830-875-3214 ext. 304, or via email at mainstreet@cityofluling.net.
