Village Crawfish Festival 2011


Hosted by the Secret Order of the Crawdaddies, 2011 marks the Village Crawfish Festivals 10th year of all things crawfish.

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.
