It’s time to loosen those belt buckles a few notches. The NOLA Crawfish Festival is on its way and it’s sure to, once again, be a huge celebration. Happening from April 29 to May 1, the fourth annual festival is the ultimate way to usher in the crawfish season.
All the mouthwatering action will take place at Central City BBQ at 1201 S. Rampart St and is presented by NOLA Crawfish King. The plan for the event is to boil up more than 6000 lbs of crawfish for hungry visitors.
In classic New Orleans style there will also be plenty of music to further liven up the crowd. Some of the bands set to hit the stage during the event are Neville Jacobs, Soul Brass Band, The Mike Dillon Band, NCF Theory of Funk, Samantha Fish, and many more.
For those with a competitive streak there will be a crawfish cook-off and an eating competition too. Think you’ve got what it takes to win? Register yourself or your team on the NOLA Crawfish Festival website.
Attend a little of the festival or the whole thing; the choice is entirely up to you. You can get general admission or VIP tickets for any of the days or purchase a 3 day VIP pass. The 3 day pass gets you unlimited crawfish, drinks, an event poster, a shirt, and a lot more.
