All tickets for Mardi Craw are sold out. We apologize for the inconvenience and look forward to seeing you at the Zoo again soon!

Join us for our first annual family friendly Mardi Craw!


Mardi Craw at the Zoo features sustainable crawfish and catfish, too! The good folks from Crawfish Country Catering are back and you won't want to miss these bugs! Crawfish Country Catering is straight from Ville Platte, LA and serves up some of the biggest and best bugs in the south and we bring them to you fresh at Mardi Craw! You can't beat these bugs! Craft beer can also be enjoyed by those at least 21 years of age. And you’ll need to quench your thirst after a generous portion of king cake. It is a fun-packed afternoon of food and festivities. The event begins at noon with catered crawfish, catfish, corn on the cob and potatoes. Enjoy live entertainment by the Crescent City Combo, Mardi Gras themed fun and some special animal encounters in the Zoo atmosphere. PLEASE NOTE - - due to the threat of inclement weather we've moved the event inside Cafe Africa to keep guests warm from the cold!
