Conroe Cajun Catfish Festival (October 14-16, 2011)

Cajun Catfish Festival
October 14th, 15th, and 16th

The Conroe Cajun Catfish Festival benefits the non-profit Friends of Conroe, Inc., who are working to enhance the quality of life in Conroe and Montgomery County through civic and cultural improvements.  The Friends contribute funds to other established nonprofit organizations, promote community projects and support the renovation of the downtown Conroe area.

Activities include Arts and crafts exhibitors from all over Texas and from other states near and far. Families can come out and spend the day in our Kid’s Area that includes children’s fun rides, Monster Mural, petting zoo, amusements, pony rides, and the Small Fry Stage where young dancers from several local dance and art schools perform. 

No need to bring your fishing poles, the Catfish is already on the grill!  But catfish is not the only food you’ll find at the Conroe Cajun Catfish  Festival, you’ll have plenty of items to choose from shrimp, gumbo, frog legs, alligator, boudin, sausage, chicken, red beans & rice, and much more.

Several notches above the basic community festival. The Conroe Cajun Catfish Festival annually draws 30,000 to 40,000people to hear it's stellar music line-up, browse through the many craft booths and exhibits and eat a variety of Cajun style food. A strong regional attraction, the featival is beginning to attract nation wide attention.
