Celebrate Crawfish in the Cajun Country

It’s time for crawfish and lots of it! The Breaux Bridge Crawfish Festival will take place on Friday, May 3; Saturday, May 4; and Sunday, May 5 in Breaux Bridge. The festival plans to host more than 30 bands during the three-day festival. Crawfish will be available in every imaginable way–boiled, fried, in an étouffée, bisque, boudin, pie, jambalaya, and so much more! When you’re done feasting, enjoy crawfish races, Cajun and Zydeco music, a cook-off, a crawfish eating contest, and a parade! Register online.
