The Downtown Lake Charles Crawfish and Seafood Festival is held April 15-16 at the Lake Charles Civic Center in downtown Lake Charles.

The festival promotes awareness of the crawfish season, the history of it, and how the seafood industry has benefited Louisiana in the past 200 years. There will be great food, live music and a carnival.

Besides all the delicious boiled crawdads you can eat, there will also be an Art Show and Resource Fair, a pageant, and a  parade.

This year's music headliners for the the Crawfish Festival will be none other than Keith Frank and the Soileau Zydeco Band, plus Geno Delafose and French Rockin Boogie!
