Celebrate one of Louisiana's favorite foods at the Delcambre Shrimp Festival August 15-19, 2012! Located about 20 miles southwest of Lafayette, Delcambre is home to one of the area's most productive shrimp fleets. The town devotes an entire weekend to honor this economic lifeblood. Events include a shrimp cook-off, queens pageants, fais-do-do's, food booths, carnival rides, and the blessing of the shrimp boat fleet. There's plenty of fun for kids of all ages and lots to see, hear, and EAT ! Visit www.shrimpfestival.net for the complete schedule of events.
