Breaux Bridge Crawfish Festival May 6 – 8, 2016


Parc Hardy :2090 Rees Street, Breaux Bridge, LA

The Crawfish Festival has also become one of the largest gatherings of world famous Cajun musicians. All weekend long you can hear the sound of authentic Cajun, Zydeco and Swamp Pop music rising from the festival.. Watch the Cajun dance contests, and if you’re brave, join in. There’s no better way to learn. There are even Cajun music workshops held in the heritage tent.
If Cajun or Creole music excites you, there’s no better place to experience it than at the Crawfish Festival!

Nothing is as unique to Cajuns as eating crawfish during festival weekend.  You’ll enjoy tasting crawfish prepared in every imaginable way—fried, boiled, in an étouffée, bisque, boudin, pie or jambalaya, and crawdogs, along with other Cajun favorites (shrimp, crab, gumbo, red beans and rice, just to name a few).
