Downtown Cajun Festival
Aiyeeee! Laissez les bon temps rouler y’all!
Downtown Wichita Falls Development and the Elks Lodge #1105 once again put a Texoma twist on the 9th annual Cajun Fest taking place Saturday, May 14th in downtown Wichita Falls. Gates open at noon and the event will last until we shut it down! Grab your family and friends, find your old Mardi Gras beads, search for your craziest hats and Cajun attire, and then head downtown to shop, eat, play and dance!
Bands to be announced soon!
Enjoy delicious dishes ALL ranging in price from $2.00-$5.00
Cajun food is a major aspect of this event, and there will be plenty of it – so come hungry! Some of the featured delicacies will be live boiled crawfish, alligator on a stick, Cajun fried catfish, crawfish etouffee, jambalaya, boudin, pork cracklins, King Cake, and more! Food will be served throughout the event, or until it runs out – so come early! Food costs range from $2 - $5 a serving. All proceeds from Cajun food sales will go to benefit Elks Lodge #1105 charities.
Returning this year is Gator Country, best known for their CMT show Gator 911. They have also been featured on Animal Planet’s River Monsters and A&E’s Billy the Exterminator. They are bringing a hands-on Gator Show that will educate about alligators, lizards, turtles, tortoises and more. If you can brave your fears, they will have plenty of opportunities for handling and photo ops!
Last, but certainly not least, is the amazing Children’s Area! Keep your children (and kids at heart) entertained all day with our carnival rides, magician, and more!
This event is designed to bring awareness to, and help the revitalization of, historic downtown Wichita Falls. It also serves as a fundraiser for Downtown Wichita Falls Development and other nonprofits. Downtown merchants will be open for shopping on Saturday. The event lasts all day, so people are encouraged to get stamped, leave and look at surrounding museums and shops.
DWFD wants to thank Kiowa Casino, the major sponsor of Cajun Fest, for helping put on this year’s event.
