is only weeks away and the excitement surrounding the event is swelling on the Tulane University uptown campus. The eighth annual festival takes place on Saturday, April 5, from 11 a.m. until 7 p.m. on the Lavin-Bernick Center and Newcomb quads.
Take a look at the infographic below for a glimpse into what it takes to put on the nation’s largest student-run festival.
Halle Kaplan-Allen, one of the festival’s student organizers, says the timing of the event is strategic. She says, “The event is always held in April because it lines up with crawfish season, which is typically from March until June.”
Tulane students are admitted free to the festival, which boasts unlimited crawfish and all the trimmings. A Tulane splash card must be shown for entry.
The public may attend for a fee of $10.
Headlining the event are performances by Lettuce, Marco Benevento, The Main Squeeze, Ballyhoo!, Wild Child, Flow Tribe, the Original Pinettes Brass Band, Sexual Thunder! and the 610 Stompers.
