The 2018 Gator by the Bay is the largest Louisiana-themed festival this side of the bayou. The festival, presented by San Diego’s Bon Temps Social Club, will feature four days of live music and performances, southern cuisine, dancing, kid-friendly activities, and family fun at the Spanish Landing Park next to the San Diego airport from May 10 through 13.

Of the artists performing, Carlsbad-based Johnny Vernazza and Sarah Rogo Blues Band will take the stage Saturday and Sunday, respectively. Their musical genres are blues, while Johnny leans more towards Southern rock and Sarah has a more soulful, Americana sound.
