The Original DownTown Lake Charles Crawfish Festival - the SPICIEST Event in Southwest Louisiana - promotes awareness of the crawfish season, the history of it, and how the seafood industry has benefited Louisiana in the past 200 years. Proceeds benefit the local Parkinson disease patients and their families for outreach, support, and education. Held in April, Parkinson Awareness Month, the festival hosts clean, family fun with the best food, Zydeco and Cajun music, a parade, and midway carnival. Recognized as one of the Top 55 Gulf Coast Destinations and Top 20 Events for Southeast Tourism, the multi-day festival is known to be one of the largest indoor/outdoor crawfish festivals in Southwest Louisiana.
