15 ACRES OF NON-STOP MUSIC, CRAWFISH, AND FUN!
May 5 - May 6, 2023
Mauriceville is a small community uniquely situated between Beaumont and the Southwest Louisiana Border. The original festival was founded in 1981 after The Texas Legislature named Mauriceville the Crawfish Capital of Texas. If you are craving all things Crawfish, this is the place. In addition to the great food, you can enjoy a great line up of live music all day Saturday, featuring
The 2023 Crawfish Season celebration will be unlike anything Mauriceville has ever experienced. We are expecting over 20 Cook-off teams from around Southeast Texas and Southwest Louisiana will descend on our fairgrounds cooking up some of the best crawfish you'll ever taste! Buy those early bird tickets so we will have plenty of crawfish for our guests and plan to come out and help us decide who boils up the best mud bugs around. If you are interested in getting in on the action, sign up to be a team captain and round up a 4 man team. If you really want to get in on the fun, sign up for the crawfish eating contest or the crawfish races for Saturday.
We kick things off Friday night at 5:00 PM with a Cinco de' Mayo celebration, including Sangria & Crawfish Tacos. Saturday morning our yearly parade will begin at 10:00 am following East down Hwy 12, turning South onto Hwy 62. At the festival grounds, we will be all about the crawfish. Patrons can devour as much crawfish as they wish while supplies last, listen to some great local musicians as well as our special entertainment starting at 6:30 pm with Junior LaCrosse & Sumtin' Sneaky.
