The Town of Delcambre, Louisiana, located about 20 miles southwest of Lafayette, is home to one of the area’s most productive shrimp fleets. The town devotes an entire weekend to honor this economic lifeblood. Events include a shrimp cook-off, queens pageants, fais-do-do’s, food booths, carnival rides, and the blessing of the shrimp boat fleet. There’s plenty of fun for “kids” of all ages and lots to see, hear, and EAT!
