Breaux Bridge Crawfish Festival

May 2-4, 2014
Parc Hardy, Breaux Bridge

If Cajun or Creole music excites you, there's no better place to experience it than at the Crawfish Festival!
The Breaux Bridge Crawfish Festival Association, Inc., which sponsors the Crawfish Festival in Parc Hardy, has strived to maintain its focus on family centered and authentic Cajun activities. The Breaux Bridge Crawfish Festival is held the first weekend in May every year in Parc Hardy located in the Crawfish Capital of the World, Breaux Bridge, Louisiana.

History of the Breaux Bridge Crawfish Festival
The world famous Crawfish Festival began in 1960 as a spin-off of the Breaux Bridge Centennial Celebration. The Louisiana Legislature had just named Breaux Bridge the Crawfish Capital of the World in 1959. The festival is now known around the country and even the world. Every May, thousands of hungry people flock to Breaux Bridge to be part of the festivities.
 
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. Whether your musical taste is Cajun or Creole, you can witness over 30 bands perform over the three day event if you think you have the stamina. It's a perfect opportunity to see our musical tradition passed from generation to generation. 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.
