Parking is always one of the hardest parts of managing the festival. We encourage patrons to ride the shuttle provided by the MYFA to eliminate issues. The Shuttle will run from the First Baptist Church to the Mauriceville Middle School, and Horizon's Dance Academy. A route map is below. However, parking is available on the festival grounds. Parking is available on site benefitting LCM Class of 2020 Project Safe Graduation. Vehicles parked in "no parking" areas will be subject to towing at the owner's expense. As the lot fills, some patrons will park and walk to the venue, please note you must have a wristband inside the grounds. Please go to the main ticket gate and purchase your entry band.
\\CASH AND CREDIT
ATMs are conveniently located on the festival grounds. Some vendors accept credit cards.
\\LOST AND FOUND
Lost and found is located in the Lloyd’s RV Command Center. Should you misplace an item, please contact a staff member/volunteer, as we will be circulating throughout the festival.
\\MEDICAL & SECURITY
We take the safety and security of our attendees extremely seriously. We understand that an outdoor festival introduces a host of additional safety issues that our staff must be mindful, and our goal is that no one gets hurt at the Crawfish Festival. Just in case, there is a First Aid Station on the Festival grounds. Additionally, there are free water stations so you can stay hydrated! We also have some of the finest local Law Enforcement around to assist in any situation to keep our festival a safe event. For the entirety of the festival, we have support from the Orange County Sheriff's Department and our local Constable, Mark Jones, as well as overnight security for our vendors.
You can’t bring your own alcohol into the festival, but beer is available from vendors inside the festival grounds with a valid photo ID. Coolers are not allowed.
The festival is planned to go on rain or shine. No refunds on tickets, vendor spaces, or food booths.
\\ALLOWED AND PROHIBITED ITEMS
Items that are not allowed at The Mauriceville Crawfish Festival are the standard items that aren’t allowed at any festivals. If you’re in doubt, it’s best to leave that item at home.
