The DTLC Crawfish and Seafood Festival is held the second weekend of each April at the Lake Charles Civic Center in downtown Lake Charles. The DTLC Crawfish and Seafood Festival promotes awareness of the crawfish season, the history of it, and how the seafood industry has benefited Louisiana in the past 200 years. The target audience for the festival is the general public; ages ranging from kids to adults. Previous years event hosted over 4,000 for the first year, and has seen an increased census each year following.
All attendees will pay an admission-only fee to enter the festival, which includes music and live band entertainment. While in the festival, there will be an opportunity to purchase merchandise and food from local businesses and vendors. The organization makes an effort to lease booth space to only local and regional small businesses. Past vendors have been from Louisiana, Texas, and Mississippi displaying and selling gifts, art, farm equipment, and food. The layout of the festival grounds at the Civic Center allows for it to be one of the largest indoor/outdoor festivals in southwest Louisiana. The festival will be held rain or shine.
