Long Beach Crawfish Festival
July 26 @ 5:00 pm - July 28 @ 12:00 pm
The Long Beach Crawfish Festival will be held July 26-28, 2019 at the picturesque Rainbow Lagoon in Long Beach, California.
New Orleans’ most exquisite flavors are heading out West to fill up the world’s largest crawfish pots. These crimson-colored, freshwater crustaceans are undoubtedly the stars of this festival. They’re more tender than lobsters and have a unique flavor. Master Chefs will prepare true, Louisiana-style crawfish along with Cajun potatoes, corn on the cob, and tangy remoulade dipping sauce.
Dance to rousing music and join the Second Line Dancing Parade a historical New Orleans tradition where people dance with a celebratory spirit. Live entertainment mixes the best Cajun, Zydeco, and New Orleans-style music and includes Zydeco dance lessons regularly throughout the day. We combine tons of fresh crawfish prepared Louisiana style by an authentic master chef in the world’s largest crawfish pots, international food court featuring a wide selection of New Orleans’s most iconic dishes (frog legs, catfish, gumbo, jambalaya, red beans and rice, bread pudding…), Café du Monde-style chicory coffee and beignets, FREE E-Souvenir Photo to capture your NOLA experience, live sports tent, children’s stage with a magic and illusion show, inflatable bounces, an exclusive VIP Lounge, Karaoke Lounge with a Live Band (on Friday and Saturday night), themed bayou bars featuring our infamous signature drink — “Screaming Crawfish” to create the largest Crawfish Festival outside of Louisiana, right here in Southern California.
