Breaux Bridge Prepares for May Crawfish Festival

Apr 02, 2018 01:03PM ● By Flint Zerangue, Sr.

One of Breaux Bridge’s largest festivals is returning to the city in a little over a month to honor the region’s mightiest crustacean: the crawfish.

The Breaux Bridge Crawfish Festival, slated for May 4-6, includes performances by Chubby Carrier and the Bayou Swamp Band and Corey Ledet, as well as traditional Louisiana fare boiled, fried or placed into étouffée.

Crawfish that have not been cooked will race, and revelers will honor the king and queen of crawfish in its annual parade.

Three-day admission is $15, and admission ranges from $5-$10. More information can be found on
