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.


Eat, drink, and dance to celebrate Downtown

Everyone knows crawfish taste better when they’re eaten on top of a parking garage with a gorgeous view of Downtown. It’s just a fact. And the fact that your ticket to the Rooftop Crawfish Boil also comes with free drinks and live music only makes it better. But the best part is that it’s all for a good cause: supporting the organization that makes Downtown a better place to live, play, and work.

The Rooftop Crawfish Boil is Downtown Lafayette Unlimited’s biggest fundraiser, enabling us to produce a year-round series of events like Downtown Alive!, ArtWalk, Sno-Ball Festival, Movies in the Parc, and the Merry & Bright Downtown Christmas. It also brings together hundreds of members of the Downtown community—Downtown businesses and their employees, sponsors and members of DLU, and people from all over Acadiana who understand the importance of having a strong and vibrant Downtown. Downtown Lafayette is the center for culture, arts, business, and life in Acadiana, and this event is the best way to celebrate it.

The 2020 Rooftop Crawfish Boil will be held on Thursday, April 16. Tickets will be on sale starting January 6.

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.
