The Isleton Crawdad Festival, presented by the Isleton Chamber of Commerce, is the largest consumption of crawdads outside of Louisiana. Over a 3-day period, the small town of Isleton, CA (Population 860) will hold the 23rd Annual Crawdad Festival on Father's Day weekend. The City of Isleton is in the "heart of the California Delta" between antioch and Sacramento on Highway 160. The Crawdad Festival is a real Delta festival geared for the entire family.
The Festival has been Isleton's signature event since 1986, regularly drawing 50,000 or more people to the tiny Delta town with a fun mix of spicy food and Cajun music.
More than 24,000 pounds of boiled crawfish will be consumed in just 3 days, and perhaps as much beer and wine. We will have bands playing Cajun, blues, and jazz sounds. There's also a mile of craft vendor booths. A carnival and a special area for young children will also offer a variety of games and fun.
