Y'all asked for a Crawfish Fest… and we are delivering.

PRESENTING THE INAUGURAL HOUSTON CRAWFISH FEST
Houstonians LOVE Crawfish. Come eat Crawfish with us on April 28th in the East End at our Inaugural Crawfish Fest on the Esplanade.

FUN fact, each year Houstonians eat more Crawfish than the entire state of Louisiana. That fact almost requires that there needs to be a Crawfish Fest in Houston. Not a few vendors in a bar. Not a festival outside of Houston. But a proper Crawfish Fest *in* Houston.

When we mentioned this idea to a few friends, it went viral. Every time we thought we had a location big enough, more of you wanted to come. Well, we found the perfect location!!! The Esplanade on Navigation in the East End. It’s a beautiful 3 block park in the middle of Navigation Boulevard.
The layout and logistics of this park will allow us to make this a free admission — no cover — event.
Crawfish, food, beverages, alcohol, vendor arts and crafts will be available for purchase.

THANK YOU
We need something from you NOW.
We need to make plans to try to ensure we have all we need for a great day, so *please* let us know if you are «Interested» or better yet «Going» on our event page.
And please consider sharing or tagging one friend who you think would love this.
More details are below.

GENERAL ADMISSION
Free for kids. Free for seniors. Free for veterans. Free for active military. Free for first responders. Free for those impacted by Harvey. Free for everyone. Meaning free entrance. 1/10th of 1% percent of people think that a zero-dollar ticket means free food, drinks and stuff. It doesn’t. It DOES mean we won’t charge you to walk in to the festival.

VIP
We intend to have a VIP area with a dedicated beverage tent and facilities. Tickets for VIP are for sale and will be limited. Details including pricing and how to buy tickets will be available to our mailing list. Sign up for our mailing list if you would like more information.

Who is cooking all these CRAWFISH?
We will have multiple Crawfish vendors which will each have their own style and recipes. We’ve never been to an event with so many different styles to choose from. Which will be your personal favorite? Only way to know is to try them all!!! Now you don’t have to drive all over town to try a bunch of different types of Crawfish. Crawfish Fest is bringing all of these to one central location.

Hopefully, you’ll find a favorite. If not, consider being a vendor and cooking your superior style next year.

FOOD BEYOND THE CRAWFISH
Aside from Crawfish, we are vetting a variety of other food vendors. We will announce those in our mailing list and as a post. Join the mailing list for the latest news.

ENTERTAINMENT
Including live music. Details will be announced via our mailing list and post on the event page. Either keep checking the event page, mark going so you’ll get updates or better yet join our mailing list.

ALCOHOL
We will feature local beers and liquor sales.
Outside beverages (alcoholic or not) are strictly prohibited. That's not just a policy, it's the law.

KIDS
Can kids come? YES. We worked hard to make this an inclusive and FREE to attend (not eat and drink) event. Bring your kids. Buy them Crawfish. Don’t buy them a beer. Enjoy the music. Shop in the market. Enjoy the Esplanade.

PARKING
There is plenty of street parking available. We will do our best to post more specific details and email them to our mailing list. Better than worrying about parking and driving — take public transportation, taxi, Lyft, Uber or car pool with a designated driver.
This is especially important if you plan to consume alcoholic beverage. Remember drinking and driving is dumb, illegal and there will be kids around. Even if you are sober, please drive slowly and with caution. Kids will be kids. Sometimes they run into the street.
Any additional questions, please send us a direct message on our Facebook page or email us at [email protected]
