In the south we love our fried catfish, so it only makes sense to make a festival all around our love of catfish. Get ready for the second annual Texarkana Cajun Catfish Festival.

The festival will take place on Front Street in downtown Texarkana. The fun starts Friday, June 30 from 5PM to midnight and will continue on Saturday, July 1 from 12PM to 11PM.

You can enjoy good ol' fashion southern fried catfish, Cajun treats and other food vendors as well. There will be live music from several artists both Friday and Saturday. Plus, arts and crafts.

If you are a vendor and are interested in renting booth space you can fill out an application here.

If you are interested in performing as part of the musically entertainment for the festival, or you can submit your information here online.
