Downtown Lafayette’s Rooftop Crawfish Boil

Supporting Downtown Lafayette never tasted so good.

The Crawfish Boil on the Rooftop is an annual fundraiser for Downtown Lafayette Unlimited, the non-profit that produces events like Downtown Alive!, Movies in the Parc, and 2nd Saturday Artwalk, and supports businesses and other organizations in Downtown Lafayette. Tickets to the boil include exclusive views from the roof of the Vermilion Street parking garage, live music, free drinks, and expertly prepared crawfish in one of the best crawfish boil settings in South Louisiana.

However — this year…we’re trying something a little different.

This year, the Boil on the Rooftop is a Parc San Souci Toot’N’Scoot Shrimp Boil.

Presented by Moss BMW, this annual event will have the same purpose and same location, but a new date and different crustacean.

Due to restrictions on large gatherings as a result of coronavirus, the annual Crawfish Boil on the Rooftop fundraiser has been rescheduled to Thursday, September 24 and will now be a Toot’N’Scoot shrimp boil event.

We are saddened that we cannot share crawfish with our supporters, but at the same time we are glad to have the opportunity to keep this event scheduled for 2020.

The Toot’N’Scoot shrimp boil will be held around Parc Sans Souci in Downtown Lafayette. A map will be provided to show entry and exit points as well as where you will pick up your shrimp and beverages.

Tickets for the boil include 1.25 lbs of premium jumbo shrimp with all the fixings and beverages including water, soda, wine, and beer. 

Pickup will begin at 4:30 pm and end at 6 pm. Live music by DJ Digital will provide “a-peelin’ tunes” to accompany the festivities.

To purchase tickets, contact Maureen Dugas Foster, our DLU Director, at [email protected].

Our epic 2019 Rooftop Crawfish Boil broke records for Downtown with over 750 people in attendance. Does this event belong in the Guinness book of world records for “Largest crawfish boil on the top of a parking garage?” It’s a strong possibility, and we hope you’ll help us to break the record again this year.
