  • The Secret Order of Crawdaddies will be serving up 700 pounds of crawfish on May 7.


Tickets are still available for the 10th annual Village Crawfish Festival, a fundraising event hosted by the Secret Order of Crawdaddies. Last year's event attracted 650 hungry people and raised more than $18,000 for Head Start of Shawnee Mission. This year, Head Start and Kansas City Young Audiences will be the beneficiaries of the Cajun-spiced soiree.

And if you don't like crawfish? There's pork barbecue, too.

The festival -- which is limited to adults only -- will be held on Saturday, May 7, from 6 to 11 p.m. at 7231 Mission in Prairie Village. Tickets, according to Jon Ratliff, one of the festival organizers, can be purchased at the festival's website -- click here -- or at the gate the night of the event.

"We're hoping to have 800 guests this year," Ratliff says. "We're planning to have food for that many."

Tickets for the festival are $40 if purchased in advance, online. Tickets at the gate will cost $50. The ticket price includes food, beverages and the raucous music of Ernest James Zydeco.
