More About Arts & Crabs

The Arts Council of SWLA is proud to announce that the 9th annual Arts & Crabs fundraiser event will take place on Saturday, August 18th, 5pm-8pm, at the Burton Coliseum. Arts & Crabs celebrates the ties between our seafood and culture - the region's greatest national assets.

Attendees sample from an extensive tasting featuring the best local chefs, each preparing a unique seafood dish representative of their cuisine's styles. Louisiana craft brew samples are offered as complementary pairings to all dishes. Chefs battle for votes in the annual "Best Crab Dish" award, which is determined by the number of tips each chef receives.

Arts & Crabs, recognized as a "Top 20 Event in the Southeast" for five years in a row by the Southeast Tourism Society, will showcase live Louisiana music, art demonstrations, and an extensive art market.

Chef and art vendor applications are now available at the Arts Council's website:

Funds raised at Arts & Crabs are reinvested back into the SWLA community through the Arts Council's year-round services and events.

Sponsorships are now available, and the Arts Council invites area businesses to reach attendees during this unique culinary event through our various sponsorship packages. For details, call (337) 439-2787, or visit click for details.
