For the past 13 years, thousands of music and food loving festivalgoers gather annually at Park Tavern in Piedmont Park to celebrate the Oyster Crawfish Festival. For the 14th installment on Saturday, March 4, 2017, Park Tavern will once again serve up approximately ten thousand pounds of fresh Louisiana crawfish that are brought in the night before - making it Atlanta's biggest crawfish festival. Conveniently located on the Atlanta BeltLine, Park Tavern will also serve fresh, regional fried, raw, and steamed oysters, delicious fried oyster, shrimp and chicken baskets, Samuel Adams brews, Angry Orchard Hard Cider, cocktails and more.
Electrifying audiences everywhere with their own provocative blend of pop, funk and soul, live music will begin at 3 p.m. with Atlanta’s own Gurufish. Then, Atlanta Brass Connection, an authentic New Orleans style "second line" band bringing the funky street jazz sound to old school classics, traditional jazz and originals, will get the crowd going before the one-only Cowboy Mouth takes the stage.
