About the Event

Crawfish King Cook-Off is a team crawfish boil where 30 teams, 10 at each site, will compete for the title of Crawfish King. This event will be held at three venues across the Baton Rouge and Gonzales area. Join us at BRCC Mid-City, Blue Cross Blue Shield on Bluebonnet, and Bayou Plaza off of Airline Hwy in Gonzales. We are looking forward to a great event this year! The gates will open at 3pm and close at 7pm, or until the crawfish runs out. Tickets are $25.00 and each ticketholder will receive two bags (total of 6 lbs.) of crawfish from the teams of your choice along with a 20oz Coca-Cola product. 

Each year this event benefits Junior Achievement and Big Buddy.
