The 10th Annual Village Crawfish Festival takes place on May 7 and it’s a party to celebrate the coming warm weather. Hosted by the Secret Order of the Crawdaddies, a group from Prairie Village, the Festival features 700 lbs. of crawfish, a pig roast, red beans and rice, beer and wine, and dancing to party music of local favorite Ernest James Zydeco.

Village Crawfish Festival benefits two important charities: Head Start of Shawnee Mission and Kansas City Young Audiences. Last year, more than 600 people attended the Festival, which raised $18,500 for Head Start. This year, the SOC added Young Audiences to ease the sting of Kansas’ budget cuts for the arts.

For more information or to purchase tickets visit the Secret order of the Crawdaddies Website.

$40.00 per person online before Sunday, May 1st., 10:00 p.m.
