The NOLA Crawfish Festival is back!  Like many of you, we are ready for our favorite time of the year to be in New Orleans.  Like years past, Nola Crawfish Fest will settle into the Daze Between Jazzfest weekends.  Attendees can loosen up and hang out every day from 3pm till 10pm within the carefree backdrop of one of the most popular new outdoor venues, The Broadside, while enjoying the mouthwatering scents and flavors of over 6,000 pounds of hot boiled crawfish and prepared on-site by Chris "Shaggy" Davis and his NOLA Crawfish King staff. And oh yeah, we have some good friends of ours getting you moving, too.  New Orleans finest Musicians in an intimate setting, literally tons of crawfish in a safe and great outdoor space? Epic times to be had!
