Louisiana Seafood Festival


A city that’s famous for seafood is sure to have one of the most legendary seafood festivals around! The Louisiana Seafood Festival takes place September 2-4 during Labor Day weekend. Taking over New Orleans City Park is top-rated seafood, drinks, live performances and plenty of family fun. A slew of local vendors will battle it out for prizes and will be bringing crawfish, shrimp, oysters and more.

Just a few of this year’s vendors include Cafe Giovanni, Red Fish Grill, Acme Oyster and Seafood House, Drago’s Seafood Restaurant, and Galatoire’s. Musicians from around the state flock to the festival, and while this year’s lineup is partially secret, previous performers have included Kermit Ruffins and Amanda Shaw.
