Breaux Bridge Crawfish Festival
May 5-7, 2023
The Breaux Bridge Crawfish Festival, held the first full weekend in May, provides the perfect opportunity to witness over 30 Cajun and Creole bands over three days, coupled with the delicious crustacean, the crawfish. Sample crawfish dishes prepared every way imaginable–fried, boiled, étouffée, bisque, boudin, pie, jambalaya and crawdogs–along with other Cajun and Creole favorites. The Crawfish Festival also hosts a parade, crawfish eating contest, Cajun and Zydeco dance contest, crawfish étouffée cook-off, crawfish race, and carnival rides for young and old alike, as well as an arts and crafts fair.
