This week New Orleans Crawfish Festival Announced the All-Star 2023 Line-up. Two of my favorite things about living in New Orleans are crawfish and Jazz Fest and nothing brings the two together like New Orleans Crawfish Festival. The 2023 event will take place May 1-3, 2023 at the Broadside in New Orleans.
I always attend Crawfish the festival on the days between covering New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival and the food and entertainment never disappoints. The midday and early evening weather is perfect to have a margarita and some crawfish in a laid back atmosphere with a traditional New Orleans vibe.
This year’s artist lineup includes Anders Osborne, George Porter Jr., Ivan Neville and Stanton Moore, forming the The New Orleans Crawfish Fest Allstars. Sonny Landreth and Lost Bayou Ramblers will also perform, in addition to power-trio PBS, featuring Porter, Russell Batiste Jr., and Brian Stoltz.
Also featured on this year’s lineup is Luther Dickinson, who will be a featured guest performer with many of the artists onstage and act as the festival’s artist-at-large. The event will also have a performance by Eric Krasno and Marco Benevento, who will team up making a power performance duo..
In addition to live music, the event also hosts a crawfish-eating competition and an Ultimate Crawfish Cook-Off. The events are judged by local celebrities, chefs, and special guests. Furthermore, the three-day extravaganza will feature an onsite arts market with some of Louisiana’s most distinctive arts and craft vendors.
