Texas Crawfish & Music Festival

Tonight kicks off two weekends of food, music and fun at the 30th Annual Texas Crawfish & Music Festival, located in Old Town Spring, Texas. It is one of the biggest and longest-running festivals in the Houston Gulf Coast region.

 

The 19th century railroad town of Old Town Spring, just north of Houston gets taken over by the sights, sounds and smells of the best of Cajun Texas.

 

Multiple stages start up at noon on Saturday and Sunday each weekend, and around 5pm on Friday. Each stage will feature live bands ranging from local musicians to national headliners that play everything from Zydeco to Texas Country to Rock music until the festival closes each night.

 

Load your kids up with tickets for the carnival, where there will be all kinds of rides and games for all ages. Be sure to stop by the arts and crafts vendors and exhibitors too.

 

There will be kids activities including a petting zoo. The kids will have a chance to cozy up to some chickens, ducks, goats, pigs, sheep and donkeys in the petting zoo, or even take a pony ride. The Birdman will introduce them to a variety of beautiful exotic birds. And what Cajun festival would be complete without a little gator wrangling – Gator Country will be onhand to do demonstrations, let the little ones pet a baby alligator, and show off some of their biggest, oldest alligators.

 

And, of course, there will be crawfish by the bucketload – the best fresh, hot and spicy crawfish the Gulf Coast has to offer, as well as other festival food.

 

Old Town Spring started as a railroad town in the late 1800s and many original buildings remain and house over 120 shops, restaurants, and art galleries. The Texas Crawfish Festival began in 1986 and has grown to one of the most popular annual events in Texas.
