Since this designation, the Breaux Bridge Crawfish Festival Association has hosted the annual crawfish festival, recognized as one of the state’s finest annual events.
Today, more than 1,600 farmers produce crawfish, utilizing over 111,000 acres of man-made ponds, and the once insignificant crustacean has become a multimillion-dollar industry. Louisiana is the largest producer of crawfish in the world, and St. Martin Parish (in which Breaux Bridge is located) produces the most crawfish in the state. It also has the most crawfish acreage in the eight-parish area known as Acadiana.
