What began in 1984 as a two-day street festival in downtown Shreveport is now one of Louisiana’s largest and most popular Cajun festivals, featuring renown Cajun, Zydeco, Blues and Jazz artists, mouth-watering Cajun cuisine, raucous contests, and fun for all ages. Now a four-day festival held each Memorial Day weekend, Mudbug Madness is nationally recognized as one of the Southeast Tourism Society’s Top 20 Events and the American Bus Association’s Top 100 Event in the nation.
Mudbug Madness #35 is full of crawfish and music! With entertainers like Dwayne Dopsie & The Zydeco Hellraisers, Terrance Simien & The Zydeco Experience, and Wayne Toups & ZydeCajun headlining the festival.
We also have our parade, crawfish eating contest for the men, ladies, and the kiddos. Don’t miss our local celebrity crawfish eating contest this year!
We have introduced some new and exciting things this year that include new food truck vendors and a new kids area for the little ones to have just as much fun as you are.
