The first-ever Holly Beach Crab festival is taking place this weekend in Holly Beach, Louisiana, from June 10th through June 12th, 2022.

It will be located at 2412 Heron Street in Cameron, La, and will run for three straight days. It will feature local vendors, crab cook-off, crab races, crab bingo, food trucks, bouncy super slides, live music, and more!

On Friday, they will hold a meet & greet from 8:00 pm to 10:00 pm. Then on Saturday, they will have a Crab Dish cookoff so if you can make a mean crab dish, you will definitely want to enter the cookoff.

Also on Saturday, get ready for the cornhole tournament, face painting and bouncy super slide for the kids, and crab races. You can also visit the food trucks, play crab bingo or enjoy a free crab dinner.
