  • Overview

    A group of friends (including both Iowa natives and Louisiana transplants) wanted to have a crawfish boil. But they wondered...what if we invite more people, have more fun, and support children and empower families in our community? So that's what we did! 

    Come join this family-friendly, authentic southern crawfish boil with other Louisiana staples - all garnished with Cajun music and family activities like crawfish races, fortune teller, and Voodoo doll making tutorials. A benefit for Youth Emergency Shelter & Services of Iowa, the riverside Cajun Fest will feature an all-you-can-eat swamp-style crawfish boil and Southern side dishes. Tony Bohnenkamp of duo Pianopalooza and the Pork Tornadoes will perform. 

    Event proceeds will go directly to Youth Emergency Services & Shelter (YESS). Click here to learn more about how YESS is changing children's lives and empowering families in Iowa. 

    To ensure the safety of all attendees, staff, and volunteers, we will follow COVID-19 event planning protocols.
