21st Annual Long Beach Festival for over 21 years the Crawfish Festival has become a tradition to over thousands of festival goers annually. We combine the best Cajun, Zydeco, and New Orleans sounds of music, tons of fresh crawfish prepared Louisiana style and served by authentic Cajun chefs, giant food court, children’s area, dance floor, two stages and beach bars to create the largest Crawfish Festival outside of Louisiana, right here in Southern California.

Truly authentic Cajun style in Long Beach California. From frog legs, cat-fish, hush puppies and of course crawfish. These guys had it covered. The decorative umbrellas. Added just the right New Orleans flear, to this west-coast’s homage to the “Big Easy”
