World Championship Crawfish Etouffee Cookoff
|Annual World Championship Crawfish Etouffee Cookoff|
It is held under a massive pavilion and is free to the public. The Cook-off is an activity for the entire family. About 100 teams compete to see who can cook the best crawfish etouffee (smothered crawfish usually served with rice). Thousands of visitors come to this annual event to view three categories of cook-off participants. Celebrity judges choose winners in the three categories including Amateur, Professional and Club/Organization. The teams also compete for the Best Decorated booth and this category has proven to be more creative and "hotly contested" than even the cooking. To the winner of each category goes the "BRAGGING RIGHTS" as the World Champion Crawfish Etouffee Cook. Once the judges have their samples, the rest of the etouffee is sold to visitors for $2.00 a serving.
Throughout the day outstanding Cajun and Zydeco bands perform for the listening delight and dancing pleasure of the spectators.
This event features professional and amateur cooks vying for the title of "World Champion." One of the best ways to taste some of the best crawfish in Louisiana. Great live Cajun and zydeco music, plenty of dancing and, of course, tons of etouffee. There will also be a poker run, arts and crafts, a petting zoo, pony rides, fun jumps, and more fun activities for the whole family! World Championship Crawfish Etouffee Cookoff is held the last Sunday in March every year, except when it conflicts with Easter.
Trophies given after 2pm. Buy Ettouffee from the booths starting at 11 am. Arts & Crafts and additional food and desserts. No admission fee
