Ragin’ Cajun Crawfish Boil 2018 | Nashville Junior Chamber

Ragin’ Cajun Crawfish Boil 2018  |  Nashville Junior Chamber

Year after year, the Ragin’ Cajun Crawfish Boil has been a Nashville tradition. The Nashville Junior Chamber started the fundraiser in a member’s backyard 19 years ago, and it has grown to an event with approximately 2,000 attendees and 4,000 pounds of crawfish. This year the event will be in a prime location at Cumberland Park with great views and easy access to downtown Nashville (heading to Broadway is always a favorite after the event wraps up!).

Ragin’ Cajun Crawfish Boil 2018 will be Saturday, April 7th. General Admission tickets get you access from 4PM to 9PM to live, local music, a souvenir cup, all-you-can-eat crawfish and cajun sides, and all-you-can-drink beer and cider. If you decide to upgrade to the VIP tickets, you get an extra hour to enjoy the fun as well as a souvenir stein, express lanes at the beer stations, VIP bathrooms, a free scoop of ice cream from Bradley’s Creamery, and access to bourbon tastings from Buffalo Trace from 3PM to 5PM.

The annual fundraiser serves to provide an amazing day for Nashville natives and tourists while also raising funds for the NJC’s Charity of the Year. This year’s charity, The Little Pantry that Could, was founded by Stacy Downey when she saw a need for access to healthy food after the 2010 flood. Their primary mission is to provide food assistance to those who need it. No judgment. No questions. They believe there is dignity in choice, so they model their food pantry to allow their guests to choose the foods they need. The Little Pantry serves around 200 families per week in the Nashville area and works to develop personal connections to ensure that any need these families have can be met.

If enjoying tasty Cajun Crawfish, drinking cold beer, and helping a local charity isn’t enough, there will also be live music by five fantastic local bands. With a diverse selection of artists and genres, there should be something for everyone!
