Your Guide to 2022 Celina Cajun Fest

Posted In: Events

We’re just over two weeks away from Celina’s largest signature event, Cajun Fest! Taking place on Saturday, May 14, in Downtown Celina, Cajun Fest is known throughout the Metroplex as a premier festival featuring live music, a massive crawfish boil, entertainment, carnival rides and so much more.

Festival Features

From 2-9 p.m., the 10th annual Celina Cajun Fest will not only showcase one of the largest crawfish boils in Texas, but also feature two live alligator shows, a market with local vendors, food trucks, and a kid’s zone with carnival rides and inflatables.

This year, the festival welcomes country music legend John Michael Montgomery for a free concert to close out the night! Live music will be playing during the entirety of the event with special guests Curley Taylor & Zydeco Trouble and Nik Parr & The Selfless Lovers.


Cajun Fest is a free, public festival, but tickets are available now for crawfish platters and for a front row experience at the concert.

The presale price of the crawfish platter is $20 per ticket (plus service fees). The platter features three pounds of delicious crawfish, corn and potatoes. The platters can also be purchased the day of the event for $30 plus service fees – so take advantage of the presale pricing!

The “Front Row Experience” is $200 per ticket plus service fees. Front row ticket holders will be able to watch country music star John Michael Montgomery from an exclusive standing area in front of the stage. The experience also includes access to the VIP lounge at Two29 on the Square with a special Cajun-inspired dinner and private bar. The Front Row Experience ticket includes one crawfish plate and one drink voucher.

Street parking downtown will be limited and many streets around the square will also be blocked for safety. To avoid the congestion, we recommend taking the free shuttle service provided from Celina High School and Brookshire’s Grocery Store in Celina.
