Local News

The 65th Annual Delcambre Shrimp Festival has already officially begun.

Come on down to the small town of Delcambre for a fun family filled day at the street fair, music stage and the shrimp cook off contest.

It’s only a 30 minute drive from Lafayette.

Festival Director Tracey Trim says the shrimp at this festival is all locally prepared and it’s some of the best around.

“You might be able to get shrimp on a stick at any other festival but you can’t get it the way we prepare it as far as boiled, fried, pasta, jumbalaya, sauce piquante, we have it all.” he declared.
