For the past twelve years, thousands of music and food loving festival-goers gather annually at Park Tavern in Piedmont Park to celebrate the Oyster Crawfish Festival. For the 13th installment on Saturday, March 26, 2016, Park Tavern will once again serve up approximately ten thousand pounds of fresh Louisiana crawfish that are brought in the night before – making it Atlanta’s biggest crawfish festival. Conveniently located on the Atlanta BeltLine, Park Tavern will also serve fresh, regional fried, raw, and steamed oysters, delicious fried oyster, shrimp and chicken baskets, Abita brews, Bacardi cocktails and more.
Featuring live music performances throughout the day, the music starts at 2 p.m. with a foot stomping set from Tray Dahl & The Jugtime Ragband. Then, Wasted Potential Brass Brand, known for its New Orleans standards, sarcastic pop, blues, funk and hip hop, will get the crowd going before Athens-based Kick the Robot warms up the stage for the one-only Cowboy Mouth. The hard-hitting band out of New Orleans will once again fill the headliner spot for the annual spring festival, serving up fans their unique style of ‘rock and roll gumbo’ and an unparalleled high energy performance that promises to be unforgettable.
