Rajun’ Cajun Throwdown

2015’s event has come and gone, but not to fear. We’re already gearing up for next year’s event on Saturday, March 12, 2016.  Save the Date and be sure to check back for information as it is updated here and please visit our our Facebook page to stay in the loop!
Now, on to the five “W”s…
WHO: Luling Main Street created this event three years ago in an effort to attract more people to our little town and enjoy a day of food and fun.  Luling Main Street is a non-profit organization that helps create Economic Development through historic preservation.
WHAT: Rajun’ Cajun Throwdown is a Cajun style cook-off with entries in Gumbo, Jambalaya, Open (anything Cajun inspired), Bloody Mary, Dessert and Showmanship categories.  The event also features a great entertainment lineup, Crawfish by the pound and vendor area. Come have a good time with us!
WHERE: We’re having a street party in Downtown Luling, TX! Come join us in the 300-500 blocks of Davis Street.  Need directions? Go ahead and plug 421 E. Davis in your GPS and “poof!” you’ll be at the festivities!
WHEN: The main event will happen on Saturday, March 14th however teams will start arriving Friday evening for early check-in, and Dessert turn in.
WHY: As a non-profit organization, fundraising is always a big part of “staying alive.” The Rajun’ Cajun Throwdown was created to help fund the many projects and events put on by Luling Main Street in a continuing effort to promote and revitalize our historic main street district.  Profits from each year’s event are earmarked to go towards a specific project in the main street district.  The first two year’s have helped to fund the Magnolia Mural project welcoming people to our great town. The 2013 event spearheaded the addition of “Heritage Circle” located in the 500 block of Davis Street, and 2014 allowed the Main Street Program to disperse a record amount of Facade Grants to buildings in our District.

    I chuckle every year when I see the misspelled banner in downtown Luling: “Rajun” should be spelled Ragin.

    • We’re glad it catches your attention. We decided to spell it this way on purpose to follow suit and look the same with “Cajun”. Hope to see you at next year’s event – always the 2nd weekend in March!

    You site says the event is always the 2nd Saturday in March. That puts the 2015 even Sat March 14th. Is this correct?

  7. Sean says:

    What time are the Musicians scheduled to be performing?

  8. Mark says:

    I know the main event is free to enter and that there well be vendors selling stuff but is there a cost to sample all the dishes being entered into the contests?

  9. Fred says:

    How much are they selling the crawfish for, I don’t see any info on pricing anywhere?

    • Hi Fred – Crawfish will be priced as follows:
      $10 – 1 lbs
      $18 – 2 lbs
      $25 – 3 lbs
      There will also be $1 tasting tickets available to sample the Cook’s entries, and a vendor area with non-cajun delights at various prices. We hope to see you there!
