Craig Morgan will be the headliner this Saturday at the 2019 Delcambre Shrimp Festival. Hits on top of hits is what Morgan specialized in with songs like International Harvester, Redneck Yacht Club, That's What I Love About Sundays, and Bonfire. 

The Shrimp Festival has everything you can imagine involving shrimp, Forest Gump jokes included. Delcambre is about 20 miles south of Lafayette and has been the home for the festival for almost 70 years. The entire town celebrates with queens, carnival rides, the blessing of the fleets, carnival rides, and live entertainment.
