19th Annual City Auto Rajun Cajun Crawfish Festival
Tuesday, February 01, 2011  -  Sunday, April 17, 2011

Kick off spring with the 19th Annual City Auto Rajun Cajun Crawfish Festival on the banks of the Mighty Mississippi. One of Memphis' most popular events returns Sunday, April 17, 2011 with something for everyone. In addition to over 14,000 pounds of crawfish, the event hosts a variety of vendors selling food, drinks, art and more!

Rajun Cajun is bigger and better than ever, featuring live Cajun and Zydeco music from Lafayette's Bayou Boys on the Comcast Main Stage. Webb Dalton will return to the Roadhouse South Stage along with the zany Cajun contests - crawfish races, crawfish bobbing, crawfish eating and the crawfish toss. Be sure to stop by the Entercom tent and meet your favorite DJ's from FM100, Classic Hits 94.1 KQK, WMC 79 and 92.9FM ESPN.

The Harrah's Swamp VIP tent is back this year after a quick sellout last year. For $75 per person ($125 couple), you'll get unlimited crawfish, cajun food and drinks, plus a chair inside the VIP tent. Order quickly folks, spots are limited and they always sell out early! To order, contact Twanna @ 901-577-2500 x 1100 or via email.
