Destin Rotary Cajun Crawfish Bash!


The Rotary Club of Destin returns this year with its very popular 7th Annual Cajun Crawfish Bash with co-host, Mezcal Mexican Grill located at The Towne Centre at Seascape. Friday, May 3 from 5:30 p.m. until 9:00 p.m., fresh crawfish from Louisiana will be dished up with traditional potatoes, sausage and corn on the cob. For those who don’t crave crawfish, there will be BBQ pork sandwiches also (made from the Club’s award-winning Boston Butts), hamburgers and hot dogs, prepared fresh on-site.

Event proceeds benefit young families in need through Food For Thought, Harvest House, Boys & Girls Club of the Emerald Coast, Mattie Kelly Arts Foundation’s community outreach initiatives, and The Rotary Club of Destin Scholarship Fund.
