Austin Crawfish Festival

About Us


Louisiana style crawfish, great music, & cold beer - deep in the heart of Texas!



 The Austin Crawfish Festival is a festival celebrating two major industries in Texas: crawfish and beer! We bring over 10,000 pounds of fresh, Louisiana grown crawfish to Central Texas to provide an experience like no other. That’s not where it stops though, in addition to all that delicious mouth-watering crawfish, we bring some of Texas’ largest craft beer vendors to provide you beer by the pitcher! Dozens of kegs full of authentic craft beer (wine available too), fresh boiled crawfish served to you in front of live music, what could be better?

 Here you’ll enjoy good food, music, dancing, exciting entertainment and games, Texan and domestic beer, and the finest local artists. Austin Crawfish Festival is a celebration of two major industries in Texas: crawfish and beer! Join us to celebrate two days of crawfish and beer deep in the heart of Texas.

There are no carnival rides confirmed for this year.


We’ll have space for your own picnic/lawn chair set up in front of our main stage where you can drink, talk, and relax under the atmosphere of authentic Texas melodies.

Patches of Hope

Patches of Hope was established in April 2015 by a group of friends to provide awareness to the lack of resources available to at risk children and their families. POH believes every child matters and deserves a solid foundation that can lead to success. Because of this belief, Patches of Hope continues to provide clothing and materials through the donations from several events and benevolent businesses in the Central Texas area. Austin, Texas is growing at an incredibly quick rate, by advancing our youth and valuing our community they hope to help create a place where individuals thrive and no child is left behind.

Clothing donation centers provide an important resource for those experiencing homelessness – clean, fresh clothing, and extra layers for cold months. Some shelters include clothing services, and thrift stores that sell used clothing at a discounted price also help serve this niche. Although, all donations are great donations and these locations certainly have a place in our community they are often few and far between. Patches of Hope bridges this gap by partnering with local events to fund-raise with the latter intent to distribute clothing and resources to those in need in the community.

Part of the profits from Austin Crawfish Festival will be used to help Patches of Hope and other charitable organizations complete their mission. We understand the importance of a strong community and will continue to do all that we can to help.
