NOLA Crawfish King, Live For Live Music and NOLA Brewing Company are thrilled to present the first-ever NOLA Crawfish Festival. Held in the middle of the 2016 spring New Orleans festival season, from April 25th-27th, the NOLA Crawfish Festival promises a true New Orleans experience from top to bottom. The festival will bring together a trifecta of Southeast Louisiana perfection - the absolute best crawfish, music, and beer the city has to offer at the NOLA Brewery and Tap Room on April 25th-27th. Out-of-towners will celebrate like the locals do--and we know how to celebrate.
The NOLA Crawfish Festival will be a true feast for the senses. Attendees can loosen up and hang out every day from 3pm till 10pm within the carefree backdrop of NOLA Brewery, while enjoying the mouthwatering scents and flavors of over 5,000 pounds of hot boiled crawfish prepared on-site by Chris "Shaggy" Davis and his NOLA Crawfish King staff.Meet the Cook

Through their endeavors in the Greater New Orleans area and across the Gulf South, the foundation hopes to keep the legacy of our beloved friend, Brett Thomas Doussan, alive in the community that fostered his deep passion and appreciation for music.
