Spend Saturday, May 11, 2020 sampling dozens of different crawfish boils cooked by teams competing for cash prizes, unique trophies and bragging rights. Feast on all-you-can-eat crawfish while the Mambo all-star music line-up keeps you dancing.
The first batch of crawfish will be hot and ready when the gates open at 11:00am, so be sure to arrive early and sample often to pick your favorite for the “Crowd’s Choice” Award. Then stay to see who our Celebrity Judges select as this year’s “Best of Boil” Champion. Each team is also invited to compete for the Best Decorated Booth Award.
Crawfish Mambo: Cook-off and Music Festival on the Lake started in 2012, the brain child of Brian Glorioso, 2011-2012 President of the University of New Orleans International Alumni Association. In launching the event, Glorioso’s goal was to create an event that would achieve two of the Alumni Association’s priority goals: build positive PR and relationships for the University and raise the funds needed to support professional development programs for UNO students like Dine Like a Professional Senior Etiquette Luncheon, resume review workshops, networking events, mentorships and scholarships.
