Texas Crawfish & Music Festival in Old Town Spring

If you like crawfish (or crayfish) you will love going to the Texas Crawfish & Music Festival in the historic town of Old Town Spring every spring (how appropriate!). This year (2015) the festival will be held on April 24-26 and May 1-3. So that's two fun-filled weekends for your entire family.

This is one of the largest crawfish festivals in the South where about 50,000 pounds of crawfish are consumed. However, these crustaceans, as delicious as they are, aren't the only attraction here.

You can also enjoy a variety of live music performances in separate stages including Rock, Country, Cajun, Bluegrass, and Zydeco. If you're so inclined, you may dance to the music.

Kids will have a ball at the different carnival rides and games. There are also plenty of vendor booths where you can find interesting and unique items.

Visiting the Texas Crawfish & Music Festival

Celebrate life at this festive event

I went to the Texas Crawfish Festival a couple of years ago with my wife, her sister in law, and niece. It was kind of unplanned, actually. We were just getting together to have fun over the weekend. My wife's sister in law is a crawfish lover, and she had heard about the festival which venue was not too far from her home. So we decided to check it out.

The food was out of this world. We all ate plenty of spicy boiled crawfish with mash potatoes, corn on the cobs, and other goodies. After we finished eating we walked around and visited the different vendor booths, bought some souvenirs, and watched a few of the performances. My wife's niece played a couple of the games and won a stuffed animal.

Old Town Spring - Texas Crawfish & Music Festival, quaint shops, museums, and more

After we left the Texas Crawfish & Music Festival we took a little tour of Old Town Spring. It's a historic railroad town with plenty of quaint Victorian style shops selling antiques, crafts, clothing, and other gift items. There are also art galleries and a couple of museums, namely the Civil War Museum and Spring Historical Museum which we are yet to visit.

Another interesting thing about Old Town Spring is that it's haunted. In fact, it's also known as "The Ghost Capital of Texas." There have been many strange and unexplained activities reported in this little town. Ghost tours are conducted especially around Halloween. I just wish the Texas Crawfish Festival would be held in the fall so that I could kill two birds with one stone. :) Update: well, now I can because...

Houston Ghost Tour currently holds tours in Old Town Spring every Friday and Saturday year-round, and daily in October.
