The festival will be back serving even more hot, fresh crawfish at a great price, along with the best of Cajun dishes and classic festival fare, only this year in a new home. The festival has moved to the grounds adjacent the Pearland Parks & Recreation Center at 4141 Bailey Rd. With the move comes the chance to bring out more: more food - including more Cajun food, more vendors, more activities, more carnival rides, and more fun! Specialty entertainment like the popular Splash Dogs will be back and bigger than before, with new Iguana Races and more added to the armadillo races, contests, and more.
 
Attractions:
 
Crawfish: The festival features the best farm-raised crawfish the Gulf Coast has to offer at a great price. The crawfish is being handled by Swamp Shack Catering - world-class, professional boilers who learned the art deep in the bayous of Louisiana. They have supplied crawfish and catered events, festivals, and high profile parties along the Gulf Coast. This will insure that the signature feature of the festival - great crawfish - is served fast and hot, spiced just right, and professionally handled in high volume. Last year on Saturday we made a decision cut back on Crawfish and servers because of an 80% chance of rain “It was a mistake!” that we won’t make again
 
Carnival: This year will see more, bigger, and better amusement rides and games with rides to thrill the adults and the little ones, too.
 
The Houston Blues Society Stage: The Houston Blues Society is dedicated to the study, research and preservation of the blues culture and music unique to Houston, Texas and the Texas Gulf Coast. They will provide a stage showcasing this iconic music of overcoming struggle that has deep traditions joining Texas and Louisiana. This year they’ll bring even more and bigger acts.
 
The Bayou Stage - The Cajun culture evokes a love of fun, good-time music. In Texas, Zydeco from Louisiana is joined by Texas Country and Classic Rock for the soundtrack of a great time.
 
Specialty Entertainment: This year Iguana Races and other new specialty acts join the popular Armadillo Races, Splash Dogs, Crawfish and Funnel Cake Eating Contests. A special Crawfish Eating "heat" between Pearland's police and fire departments will allow patrons to cheer on their heroes.
 
Festival Vendors: The festival will feature rows of vendors with the best of arts, crafts, gifts and more from Pearland, the Greater Houston-Gulf Coast Area and around the country.
 
Children's Area: will provide all patrons need to keep their kids busy and having fun during the event.
