Tualatin Crawfish Festival

The first Tualatin Crawfish Festival took place over 60 years ago and has become a fun annual tradition in year’s since. In 1951, crawfish had over populated the Tualatin River, which led to the idea of holding a Crawfish Festival. This even becomes increasingly popular each year with an average of 12,000 attendees. The festival has fun for the whole family, including the Crawfish Crawl (Half Marathon/5K/Relay races), kids activities, fireworks, games, live music, food, beer, and plenty of crawfish.
