The annual Tualatin Crawfish Festival in Tualatin, Oregon, gets its crawfish straight from Oregon’s Lake Billy Chinook and Pacific Seafood. Make like a kid and eat these crustaceans with your hands — hot, cold, jambalay, gumbo, hushpuppy or crawfish cocktail. (If you ask for utensils they’ll think you’re joking.)
The Crawfish Festival offers free admission of Friday to kick off festivities at the Tualatin Commons. On Friday, you can also get sample size crawfish dishes for a small fee. Saturday and Sunday admission is $4 for adults, $2 for children.
The Crawfish Festival kicks off with a Chef’s Mystery Box Cook-Off and an all new Food Cart Friday. Friday Admission to the Lake at the Commons is free. You can dance and listen to live music. Both days offer great family entertainment as well as the new Corks and Keg’s area which will allow guests to taste Oregon Micro Brews and Wines.
