Rajun Cajun Crawfish Festival Returns for the 29th Year

Porter-Leath’s 29th Annual Rajun Cajun Crawfish Festival returns on Sunday, April 24 from 11 a.m. through 7 p.m. at Wagner Place and Riverside Drive, between Union Avenue and Beale Street. Each year, the festival supports free programs and services that Porter-Leath provides for over 40,000 local children and their families to achieve healthy, optimal and independent lifestyles.

Recognized among Memphians as the unofficial start of spring, Rajun Cajun is one of the few Memphis festivals that maintains free admission. The festival offers fun for all Mid-South families, including crawfish bobbing, eating and racing contests. And children ages 12 and under can play a wide variety of age-appropriate games at the Kids Area on Riverside Drive.

Presented by Orion Federal Credit Union, Rajun Cajun is the largest one-day crawfish festival in the Mid-South, with over 35,000 attendees and 17,000 pounds of fresh Louisiana crawfish. The festival will feature live swamp soul, rhythm & blues and funk fusion entertainment from Freeworld on the Beale Street Stage and Hope Clayburn’s Soul Scrimmage on the BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee Main Stage.
