Mark your calendar and bring your lawn chairs for Bower Center for the Arts 8th Annual Crawfish Festival! Hundreds of pounds of freshwater crawfish are brought to Bedford live and boiled on the spot.

Etoufee, red beans & rice, chicken gumbo, corn on the cob, and potatoes are included in the spring feast. Dr. John Bower and Edna Curry not only bring everything (food & cooks) from Mississippi, they also bring several family members and friends from Mississippi and Virginia to prepare and serve at the Crawfish Festival.

And you can’t have a festival without live music! Get ready to move your feet to the rollicking music of zydeco music performed by Zydeco Crayz, from DC.
