As always, the Rajun Cajun Crawfish festival will feature a large crawfish boil, gumbo cooking contest, and Zany Cajun Contests, including crawfish races, a crawfish eating contest, crawfish toss, and crawfish bob. Two stages, both produced by Memphis Sound Entertainment™, will feature live musical Entertainment by two authentic zydeco bands , both from Lafayette Louisiana: The Bayou Boys on the Main Stage and Terry and the Zydeco Bad Boys on the South Stage.
"Rajun Cajun is one of the most popular spring events here in Memphis, and we're expecting this year to be bigger and better than ever," said Mike Warr, executive vice president and development at Porter-Leath. "This event gives people a chance to come out and enjoy a fun, authentic Cajun event while raising money to further Porter-Leath's mission of helping children and families in the Memphis area."
Admission is free, and all proceeds from event vendors go to Porter-Leath. Tickets also are available in advance for the Swamp VIP Tent for $40 per person and $70 per couple. VIP ticket-holders receive unlimited crawfish and drinks.
