69th Delcambre Shrimp Festival

August 6th, 2019 by

 

Louisiana is known for its fierce Cajun roots and its mouthwatering seafood. Whether spicing things up with a big bowl of gumbo or tossing back fried shrimp after fried shrimp, you know that when you’re eating local, you’re eating well. The 69th Delcambre Shrimp Festival is almost upon us and we’re here to tell you that this is an event you don’t want to miss out on!

The first Delcambre Shrimp Festival was held 69 years ago in an effort to raise money for the Delcambre Fire Department. Over the years, the festival would go on to support local projects and businesses. Before being known as the Delcambre Shrimp Festival, festivities went under the Iberia Parish Shrimp Festival and Agricultural Fair. The name was changed at the festival’s 24th birthday, in 1974. 

For five days the festival will draw in audiences from all over Louisiana. The festivities start on Wednesday, August 14 and will run until Sunday, August 19. Admission into the Delcambre Shrimp Festival is free, but be prepared to shell out a few dollars here and there for the delicious food and drink. Street fairs, live music from local performers, endless shrimp dishes and competition promise fun for the whole family! A shrimp cook-off and the firemen’s water fight are among fan favorites at the Delcambre Shrimp Festival. National recording artist Craig Morgan will headline music on Saturday, August 17’s performance.
