The event, which takes place on May 7th, features 700 pounds of crawfish, a pig roast, red beans and rice, beer and wine, and dancing to the 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.
