The Louisiana Crawfish Festival is quickly approaching and we proudly present the "THE BOIL", "SACK OF TAILS", "HEADS AND TAILS", and the "HOT STUFF CRAWFISH" publicity sponsorship programs. Your company and its commitment to Beautiful and Historic St. Bernard Parish are greatly appreciated.
The festival originated in 1975 and has grown to become a St Bernard tradition. The weekend of festivities boasts proudly of its ability to reunite friends, attract family reunions, spark new relationships and spread joy throughout the entire community and not to mention that Patrons frequent the festival annually, from all areas of the United States and abroad . This spring event kicks off the entire festival season. Our festival features the best Boiled Crawfish in the south and it comes with all the “Fixings”. We also feature crawfish dishes of all kinds!!! Dishes like, Crawfish Bread, Crawfish Pasta, Crawfish Pies, Crawfish Fried Rice, and Crawfish Egg Rolls adorn the limelight while many other food booths tickle just about everyone’s pallet. The last two years have drawn record crowds, and this year promises to be even bigger. Revenue generated from the festival is donated to various Charities and Civic organizations in St. Bernard and the Metro Area.
