Crawfish Cook-Off

MARCH 30, 2014

etouffee2009The City of Eunice, Louisiana’s Prairie Cajun Capital, is in the heart of the top crawfish producing area in the United States. Blessed with this natural resource, the World Championship Crawfish Etouffee Cook-Off was started in 1986 to showcase our crawfish industry and local chefs.

Held the last Sunday in March (upcoming year, March 30, 2014) at the Northwest Pavilion, the World Championship Crawfish Etouffee Cook-off attracts locals and visitors who appreciate good cookin’!

Teams compete to see who can cook the best crawfish etouffee (smothered crawfish). Celebrity and professional judges proclaim winners in three categories; Amateur, Professional and Club/Organization. Teams also vie for People's Choice and the Best Decorated booth --- the entries for this category get more creative every year. Once the judges have their samples from the booths, the public can buy the crawfish etouffee directly from the participants. Participants can also cook and sell one other food items in addition to their crawfish etouffee.

Beginning Saturday night, March 29th we will host the Cookoff Kickoff Street Dance on 2nd Street in Downtown Eunice featuring the Bernie Alan Band.  On Sunday morning beginning at 10 AM, bands perform for the listening and dancing pleasure of our visitors until 4 PM. Winners are announced from the music stage at 3:00 PM.
