BATON ROUGE, La. (WVLA/WGMB) — Regional restaurants and caterers will come together for Crawfete 2020 on March 8 at Perkins Rowe. The fundraiser, organized annually by the Baton Rouge Epicurean Society and the Louisiana Hospitality Foundation, allows event goers to enjoy boiled crawfish and crawfish themed dishes from a variety of Capital City restaurants.

Local restaurant owners Stephen Hightower (City Pork and Rouj Creole), along with Jim Urdiales (Mestizo’s) serve as the head of the Crawfete 2020 committee and board president, respectively.

Hightower and Urdiales stopped by the FOX 44 studio and encouraged interested parties to get tickets early, considering the event sold out in 2019. General admission gives guests the opportunity to taste crawfish and dishes from all participating restaurants and chefs. Guests may then vote for their favorite, where the winner(s) is deemed ‘People’s Choice.’

The VIP Crawfete experience gives guests the same opportunities as general admission plus private indoor access to the VIP area, where organizers have partnered with Bin 77. VIP guests will have access to exclusive seating, a private restroom and other perks.

Attire is casual chic. The event is a block-style party and family-friendly. Live entertainment will be provided.

Beer, soda and water will also be available for purchase. The event begins at 2 p.m., rain or shine. Tickets and more information are available here.
