On Feb. 4, 2023, Valley residents can expect an immersive Bourbon Street experience complete with French Quarter-style backdrops, street performers and beads tossed from above at the fourth annual Angry Crab Shack Southwest Cajun Fest at AJ Chandler Park from 2 to 9 p.m.

Angry Crab Shack Southwest Cajun Fest will be held from 2 until 9 p.m. at Dr. AJ Chandler Park. Headlining performing talent Buckwheat Zydeco Jr. and The Ils Sont Partis Band will enrapture guests with an authentic Louisiana blend of rhythm and blues tunes, joined by opening act NOLAZ playing New Orleans soul music. Other entertainment elements include jugglers, stilt walkers, magicians, street performers and a bombastic brass band will capture the energy of New Orleans and transport attendees to the French Quarter.

To accommodate lovers of Cajun cuisine, locally owned seafood restaurant Angry Crab Shack will serve a giant seafood boil in an expanded dining space. Other local Cajun restaurants will cook up dishes like gumbo, frog legs, beignets, po boys, hush puppies, alligator, catfish and much more. Cocktail enthusiasts can sip on hurricanes, daiquiris, and specialty themed drinks at “The Swamp” bar created by onsite mixologists, while iron-gutted partygoers can participate in both crawfish and andouille sausage eating competitions. Other activations include a live alligator petting zoo and a kid’s zone featuring rides and inflatables.

General admission tickets start at $25. Kids 12 and under receive free entry.
