The Waterway Village Zydeco and Crawfish Festival boils up a beaucoup of fun in Gulf Shores. Locals and visitors are invited to sink their teeth into hot, juicy crawfish throughout the day while dancing to the infectious rhythms of some of the best Zydeco bands from around the South. There will be arts and crafts vendors and children's activities.
This 4th annual event is a result of a unique collaboration between the City of Gulf Shores, the Coastal Alabama Business Chamber, Gulf Shores and Orange Beach Tourism and Waterway Village merchants, including Acme Oyster House, Tacky Jacks, Gulf Coast Arts Alliance, The Diner, Big Beach Brewing Company and Wheeles Karate Academy.
The festivities will kick off at 8 a.m. with the Zydeco and Crawfish Festival 5K. The good times will roll all day long as the crawfish pots begin boiling at 10 a.m. and the Zydeco sounds will be grooving until 6 p.m.
