Houston Celebrates Diversity With Crawfish Fest
May 5, 2012 by James
Houston‘s famous Crawfish Fest is gearing up for May 19th.
Each year, the residents of Houston, Texas gather together for their annual Houston Crawfish Fest. This year will be no exception. As always, the festival is expected to draw over 1,000 people to enjoy food, fun, and philanthropy. The goal of the Crawfish Fest, according to its founders, is to celebrate the different cultures of Houston through the unique flavors of the Cajun culture. This year, proceeds from the festival will benefit Agents Providing Empowerment Network (A.P.E.N), a non-profit organization in Houston that offers empowerment and charity to low-income minorities.
The Crawfish Fest will take place from 3 p.m. to 9 p.m. on May 19th at the Local Live Headquarters in Houston. For $20 beforehand or $25 at the door, visitors can enjoy all-you-can-eat crawfish, the Beer Garden, tournaments and performances from various zydeco, jazz, and blues bands. As a result of its laid-back and bar-like atmosphere, the Crawfish Fest is the perfect opportunity to reach an audience of young singles and couples. In addition, the Crawfish Fest’s philanthropic efforts make it the perfect place to target volunteers for local non-profits.
Hiring local print companies to create printed flyers, postcards, and business cards is a great way to reach individuals entering and exiting the Crawfish Fest. Local business owners, event hosts, and non-profit leaders can distribute these printed materials to get the word out. Due to the small size and compact nature of these communication devices, your printed pieces can travel well and further spread the message through word-of-mouth advertising.
