This year we’re stepping it up a notch and moving the party to the banks of the Mighty Mississippi! We’ll have 50 teams from around the city boiling up their best crawfish and beer on tap by local craft breweries such as Abita, Nola Brewing, Bayou Teche, Covington Brewhouse, Chafuncta Brewing Co., Parish Brewing Co., and Tin Roof. We have an incredible lineup of music featuring Papa Grows Funk, Honey Island Swamp Band, Johnny Sketch and the Dirty Notes, and Stone Rabbits!

Admission to the event is FREE! Food and beverages can be purchased a la carte or you can buy a CAJUN PASS and enjoy ALL-YOU-CAN-EAT-AND-DRINK crawfish and craft beer all day long! For a limited time, the Cajun Pass is available online for just $50, while the regular price is $60. So hurry up and get your passes now!

Proceeds from this event benefit The Drew Rodrigue Foundation and its various charitable activities.
