The Crawdad Festival, LLC, is the proud orchestrator of "The Crawdad Festival," a vibrant celebration that emerged as the largest crawfish festival in Northern California. Established in 2022, our company triumphantly launched this event in Isleton, California in 2023 drawing an astounding crowd of over 70,000 participants—a testament to our commitment to delivering unforgettable experiences.


    Fueled by the resounding success of our inaugural year, we strategically decided to relocate the festival to Cal Expo in Sacramento, California, aiming to provide an even more enriched and enjoyable experience. Our move promises numerous advantages, including ample parking, enhanced accessibility, reduced traffic, and proximity to a range of hotels catering to out-of-town travelers.


    At The Crawdad Festival, we pride ourselves on curating a community-oriented, multicultural, and family-centric event. Scheduled annually for Father's Day Weekend, our festival brings together diverse audiences to immerse themselves in the lively atmosphere at Cal Expo. The essence of Cajun cuisine, live music, family activities, and parades converges to honor Father's Day Weekend, creating a dynamic and inclusive environment.


    Our dedication to authenticity shines through in the culinary delights we offer. Indulge in the taste of Louisiana with thousands of pounds of specially imported crawdads from Louisiana crawdad farms. Beyond crawdads, our diverse range of delectable options from various vendors includes fried alligator, frog legs, catfish, gumbo, bayou chicken, colossal barbecued turkey legs, and other Louisiana-inspired desserts.


    Music enthusiasts will find a haven at our festival, where live bands on three stages deliver blues, jazz, rhythm & blues, rock, and Louisiana Zydeco, infusing energy into the festivities. For those feeling adventurous, our dance contest provides a platform to showcase moves and compete for exciting prizes.


    Families are at the heart of our event, and the Kid Zone caters to the little ones and the young at heart. Carnival rides, games, face painting, a magic show, balloon twisting, youth performances, and more ensure a day filled with joy and entertainment.


    As the largest Crawdad Festival in Northern California, our event has become the ultimate kickoff to summer. We invite fathers and families to join us, creating cherished memories and celebrating the spirit of community, culture, and cuisine.


    The Crawdad Festival, LLC, is not just an event—it's an annual tradition that brings people together for an unforgettable experience.
