Louisiana Crawfish Festival

The Louisiana Crawfish Festival originated in 1975 and has grown to become a Louisiana tradition with over 140,000 fest-goers attending annually from all areas of the United States. They arrive by auto, air, bus and train to come in for the spring event that features authentic Cajun cuisine.  30,000 pounds of boiled crawfish with all the "fixins” & crawfish dishes such as Crawfish Bread, Crawfish Pasta, Crawfish Pies, Crawfish Rice, and Crawfish Jambalaya adorn the limelight while many other food booths tickle just about everyone’s pallet.

Cajun entertainment and current hit parade bands explode on stage to draw crowds to the sounds and glitter of showmanship.  Arts and crafts lure hundreds to see real hand crafted products. Cups, plates, belts, straw hats, sun glasses, tennis visors, personalized home crafts, license plates and key chains are just a few of the treasured values offered.  There’s always a giant midway with carnival games, cotton candy, candied apples and rides to thrill.

The weekend of festivities boasts proudly of its ability to reunite families, attract family reunions, spark new relationships and spread joy throughout the entire atmosphere. Balloons, toy animals, tee shirts, aprons, ball caps, and other memorabilia flood the festival with mementos to remind us that the next crawfish festival is on the horizon.
