Liberty Theater

The home of the “Rendez-Vous des Cajuns” Radio Show, the Liberty Center for the Performing Arts, located at the corner of South 2nd Street and Park Avenue, is a 1924 vaudeville/movie house which was purchased by the City of Eunice and renovated through a community project. The theater is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and has been included in the Great American Movie Theaters Preservation Press Guide published by the Smithsonian. During its “hey-days” of the 1920’s and 30’s, personal appearances were made at the Liberty by Fattie Arbuckle, Tex Ritter, Jimmy Clanton, the Bowery Boys and Roy Rogers. Open on Saturdays, 4 PM to 7:30 PM.

Every Saturday Night from 6:00 PM to 7:30 PM, in the Liberty Center, the City of Eunice and the Jean Lafitte National Historical Park & Preserve present a live radio show, featuring both Cajun and Zydeco music in the Grand Old Opry/Louisiana Hayride/Prairie Home Companion format. Cajun French is the language of the show with enough English spoken so that everyone can enjoy this unique and one-of-a-kind experience.
