2020 Louisiana Shrimp & Petroleum Festival Officially Canceled

It was announced on May 4 that the festival was on-hold due to COVID-19 concerns.

Statement from Festival Board:

“After months of deliberation, the Board of Directors of the Louisiana Shrimp and Petroleum
Festival announces the cancellation of the 85th Festival due to the ongoing effects of COVID-19.

This difficult decision was ultimately made with the health of the community in mind. As we
have all made sacrifices during this trying time, we believe it is our duty to continue to keep our
community safe and healthy. The Festival Board also took into consideration the financial
hardships that have come to our community and state during the pandemic which is still ongoing.

The Festival Board would like to thank all sponsors, members, friends, and attendees for all of
their support during this challenging time. We are all looking forward to next year for our 86th
