Live music is a big draw for the festival in addition to the obvious, and there are a ton of great musicians playing this year. The stage will open at 11:00 a.m. with a one-hour set from Fusion Jones and continue with one-hour sets all day, including April B and the Cool, Marshall Brown and the Rare Birds, H3RO, Dead Swells, Terrence Young Project and Mckenzie Butler Band. Then at 6:00 the headliner – Jump, Little Children – will have a two-hour show.
Crawfish, music and so much more. That’s what the Rosewood Crawfish Festival has to offer. So what about all that “& More?” Other activities throughout the day include the Artist Village, the Crawdaddy Dash, the Li’l Crawdaddy Carvinal and plenty of great food & drink on top of the namesake dish.
Tickets for the event, which takes place on May 4th from 11:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m., are available now online and at the SC State Fair Grounds, the festival’s new location. You can also purchase advanced tickets from local businesses such as Rockaway’s, Rosewood Market, Dano’s Pizza and Bottles. Tickets in advance are only $10, but if you wait until the gate you’ll have to pay $15.
