The Louisiana Swamp Thing & Crawfish Festival

Some like it hot--and some like it Cajun. At the Louisiana Swamp Thing & Crawfish Festival, Austinites can test their iron stomachs against some of the fieriest fried food the bayou has to offer. About 7,000 pounds of crawfish will be given away over the course of the 11-hour event, while funk, blues, dixieland, and zydeco bands provide the entertainment. Those not in the mood for flaming-hot crustaceans will find catfish, bayou chicken, fried oysters, po'boys, frog legs, jambalaya, and anything else the cooks conjure up with their culinary voodoo.


  • “Be prepared for a wait in line (we waited 45min) for a small bowl of crawfish. They tasted good, jambalaya was good, & boudin was good. But wait was not so good”

  • “Take a folding chair, hat sunscreen and be ready to eat eat eat and enjoy! Absolutely loved it!!!”

  • “Crawfish Stains...”
