Crawfish Festivals: Celebrating with Fun and Food


In Louisiana and the south, boiling and eating crawfish is a long standing family tradition.

But we eat crawfish at places besides the home, whether it be in restaurants, family reunions, football games, or at company gatherings.

And we celebrate the crawfish in another way: Festivals!

These events encompass all the good things about life along the Gulf Coast and the USA: food, fun, music and merriment!

And the list of festivals would not be complete without crawfish festivals, held all over Louisiana, from north to south, east to west, and in neighboring Texas, Mississippi, Alabama and Florida ... and even New Jersey, Illinois and San Diego!
