Recipe of the Month: Crawfish Woodbine

April 30th, 2020

The signature dish of the annual Woodbine Crawfish Festival, Crawfish Woodbine, was perfected over time by one of the founding members of the festival, Alice Sue Crews. Royce Proctor, committee chair of the Woodbine Crawfish Festival notes, “We are the largest crawfish festival in the state of Georgia. The original idea for the festival was rooted in supporting crawfish farms back years ago and promoting local seafood. Today the crawfish are driven fresh from Louisiana just hours before the festival kicks off, which has become a signature event for the Satilla Waterfront Park here in Woodbine.”

The festival was scheduled to celebrate its 35th year on April 24-25, 2020, but had to be cancelled due to the COVID-19 global pandemic. Visit woodbinecrawfish.com for complete festival details.
