Zydeco Crawfish Festival

The Waterway Village Zydeco and Crawfish Festival boils up a beaucoup of fun on Saturday, April 15 in Gulf Shores.  Locals and visitors are invited to sink their teeth into hot, juicy crawfish throughout the day while dancing to the infectious rhythms of some of the best Zydeco bands from around the South.  There will be arts and crafts vendors and children's activities.

The festivities will kick off at 8 a.m. with the Zydeco and Crawfish Festival 5K benefitting Furrever Homes.  The good times will roll all day long as the crawfish pots begin boiling at 10 a.m. and the Zydeco sounds will be grooving until 6 p.m.
