Though crawfish season can last between November and July, the peak season when you’ll find the best crawfish is typically around early Spring. If you’re in Nashville, the best time to indulge in this delicacy is during the annual Ragin’ Cajun Crawfish boil, Nashville’s largest all-you-can-eat crawfish festival.
This year marks the 20th annual Ragin’ Cajun Crawfish Boil and it’ll be held April 13th and there will be approximately 4,000 pounds of fresh crawfish ready for your taste buds. If you can’t make it to the event, worry not; there are plenty of places around Nashville where you can eat crawfish.
