GA TiCkets now available!


NCF Crawfish Eatin' Contest

The NOLA Crawfish Fest excitement doesn’t end with the music, crawfish and beer. On Monday May 1st, we also play host to some serious monsters who make the annual attempt at devouring the most crawfish in 7 minutes. No need to suck the heads in this comp, it’s a mad dash race to twist, pinch and eat as many tails as possible. Think you have what it takes? Sign up now! Each participant gets free entrance to the festival on Monday and the winner receives $100 and claim to the throne of 2023 NCF Crawfish Eatin’ Comp Champion.

How do YOU do crawfish? Have a secret family recipe or a back yard boil speciality that you have made yours? Show us what you are made of and enter a team to compete in the NCF Ultimate Crawfish Cook-off. 20-teams will face off against each other when our panel of celebrity judges will vote to crown the NCF ULTIMATE Crawfish Champion!
