April 5 – 7 the bugs will be boiling and a “bon temp” will be had by all at the first annual Pearland Crawfish Festival. The Pearland Crawfish Festival takes the friendly, relaxed fun and community feel of a small town fair and serves it up big.

We’ll be serving crawfish hot, fresh, at multiple stations throughout the festival at a great price, along with the best of Cajun dishes and classic festival fare. The festival will take place on a 50 acre lot on the West side of HWY 288 between Broadway (FM 518) and FM 2234 provided by Shadow Creek Ranch, providing perfect visibility and plenty of room for fun, crawfish at multiple stations, stages, a 20 ride carnival, and parking at the festival site.

The mix of flavors includes the live music with the area's best Zydeco, Texas Country, and Classic Rock, while The Houston Blues Society will bring in the blues. There will be costumed performers and activities, crawfish races, crawfish-eating contests, and more continuing throughout the event. Performers will mingle with vendors of gifts, arts and crafts. A full Carnival will provide plenty of activities and fun for kids. All of Pearland is ready to join in and help show the world everything that makes life here so special.

Crawfish: We’re bringing in the best farm-raised crawfish the Gulf Coast has to offer at a great price. The crawfish service is being handled by Swamp Shack Catering - world-class, professional boilers who learned the art deep in the bayous of Louisiana. They have supplied crawfish and catered events, festivals, and high profile parties along the Gulf Coast. The choice of Swamp Shack Catering will assure patrons of great crawfish, served fast and hot, spiced just right, with professional handling, at a great price.

Crawfish Eating Contest: Contestants compete for the championship over the three days of the event.
The Gulf Coast Washer Pitching Championship: Presented by Big Daddy Washer Boards, competitors will vie for the title of Washer Champion in this popular horseshoes-like game and a trophy board.

Carnival: Happy World Shows is a world-class provider or amusement rides, games, and food to fairs, festivals, and events throughout the states of Texas, New Mexico, Colorado and even the Republic of China.

Festival Vendors: The festival will feature rows of vendors with the best of arts, crafts, gifts and more from Pearland, the Greater Houston-Gulf Coast Area and around the country.

Above all, this festival is all about the food.
