It’s that time of the year again. Crawfish Festival serves up succulent scores of fresh seasoned Cajun crustaceans prepared to mouth-watering perfection in the world’s largest crawfish pots. These crimson-colored, freshwater crustaceans are more tender than Lobsters and have a unique flavor. Master Chefs will prepare true, Louisiana-style crawfish (with all the fixings, of course).

Get ready to indulge yourself all weekend long as you catch a whiff of other sensational aromas circulating through the air. You’re sure to stumble upon a wide selection of New Orleans’s most iconic dishes including Café du Monde-style chicory coffee and beignets, jambalaya, gumbo, red beans and rice, alligator, frog legs, and bread pudding, for starters. Once you’ve licked your plate(s) clean, plan to wash it all down with a mean margarita, fresh beer, or our signature drink the “Screaming Crawfish” at our French Quarter themed bars.

Dance to rousing music and join the Second Line Parade, a historical New Orleans tradition where people dance with a celebratory spirit. The whole weekend is stacked with an outstanding lineup of Cajun, Zydeco, and New Orleans-style music acts to dance to on a huge dance floor. Dance lessons regularly throughout the day. To prepare for your musical debut on the streets of the French Quarter, consider singing your heart out in the Karaoke Lounge with a live band behind you. Be sure to check out the live cooking demonstrations, local artisans, live sports tent, the exclusive VIP Lounge/Private Cabanas, children’s stage featuring magic illusion show (as seen on America’s Got Talent), carnival rides, games and inflatable bounces. But, don’t forget to get your FREE Souvenir E-Photo that is included in general admission to capture your NOLA experience.

What are you waiting for? Let the good times roll!
