3 Reasons to Visit the World Famous Breaux Bridge Crawfish Festival

If you love crawfish and all things Cajun as much as we do, then do yourself a favor and mark your calendar now for the world famous Breaux Bridge Crawfish Festival!

 

Coming Soon: Breaux Bridge Crawfish Festival

May 4-6, 2018

Breaux Bridge, Louisiana

 

No, this event is not at Razzoo’s Cajun Café – or even in Texas for that matter - but it’s worth the drive. Each year the fine folks of Breaux Bridge, Louisiana throw the biggest Cajun crawfish party we’ve ever seen!

 

Why Breaux Bridge?

 

In 1959, Breaux Bridge was given the title of “crawfish capital of the world” by the Louisiana legislature. Determined to make good on such a prestigious title, the folks of Breaux Bridge began the festival in 1960. It’s grown each year, with nearly 40,000 flocking to Breaux Bridge each year for the festival!

 

What Can I Expect at the Festival?

 

 

Here are 3 reasons you must visit this festival:

 

·      Cajun Crawfish Galore: If you’re a crawfish fan, then you’ll think you died and went to heaven at the Breaux Bridge Crawfish Festival. Order up a bowl of crawfish bisque, a crawdog, fried crawfish, or just plain ‘ol Cajun crawfish boiled to perfection. No matter how you like your crawfish, there’s no shortage of ways to enjoy it.

 

·      Family Fun: Bring the whole family, because there are rides and midway for all! Arrive early on Sunday to experience the fanfare of the parade, with beautiful floats and of course – more crawfish.

 

·      Soulful Zydeco Music: As Texans, we don’t often hear the soulful sounds of Cajun Zydeco music. All the best Zydeco and Cajun bands play the Breaux Bridge Crawfish Festival, so plan to take in the sights and sounds, or even enter one of the dance contests!

 

Make your calendars to visit the Breaux Bridge Crawfish Festival, and in the meantime, visit us at Razzoo’s Cajun Café for freshly boiled crawfish ready to be devoured! We’re the best Cajun restaurant in Texas for a reason.
