Where else but Louisiana, would you find a celebration dedicated to the little crustacean that we called the Crawfish, as Louisiana plans for the tens of thousands that will attend there Crawfish Festival. Exquisite Impressions Special Events and the Committed 100 Men, a non-profit organization will join in presenting the 2nd Annual “Straight from the Bayou Crawfish Festival” in Las Vegas.
The response from the 2013 Crawfish Festival was so overwhelming we have decided to do it again. Never in a million years could you have told us that people would turn out in massive numbers for a Crawfish Festival in Las Vegas. But they did, just like the Louisiana Crawfish Festival folks traveled for miles to attend the 1st “Straight from the Bayou Crawfish Festival” and it was a trip well worth the miles. That’s because the Crawfish Festival has become one of the largest food and music festival in the country. Since its conception, many cities have joined in presenting the great Crawfish Festivals. For this reason, we will again pay tribute to the Louisiana Crawfish Festivals with a two-day celebration that will highlight this festive occasion.
Now, in order to present the best Crawfish Festival possible you must know a little about the following: Cajun music, food, dance and culture, but wait, that’s not all. What about first-hand knowledge in planning a Crawfish Festival or the experience of attending the Louisiana Crawfish Festival itself? All of that and more have been covered with the executive producer of the 2014 “Straight from the Bayou Crawfish Festival”. As a native of Baton Rouge, Louisiana and a family tree filled with Louisiana Cajun and Creoles, the executive producer, Floyd Henderson certainly knows the history of Louisiana and the Crawfish Festival. As President/CEO of Exquisite Impressions Special Events, and event planning and Design Company based out of Las Vegas, Nevada for over twenty-five years, he also has the experience of producing a number of award winning events for hotels, conventions, tradeshows, corporations and organizations.
The plans and all of its attractions have been given careful consideration before final approval. You will find the best taste in entrees from Crawfish Etouffee to Cajun Gumbo along with Shrimp and Sausage Jambalaya. We will also offer a number of delightful dishes to tease your taste from southern style cooking, sea foods and festival snacks. The highlight for the event is sure to be the Cajun, Zydeco and Blues entertainers who will travel from the Bayou state to perform throughout the day. Not to mention the Louisiana Chefs and Bartenders serving up signature foods and beverages. That’s not all; we will also be presenting commercial vendor booths, cooking demonstrations, food tasting, the Etouffee cook-off, Crawfish races and a Crawfish eating contest.
So, prepare yourself to enjoy two-days of Louisiana Culture and down home cooking, entertainment and attractions. Now remember, don’t forget to visit our Louisiana Heritage Tent and Marketplace on the way out to pick up your Crawfish Festival souvenir or gift.
