CELINA, TX – The City of Celina announced details for the 10th Annual Celina Cajun Fest, the City’s largest annual outdoor festival. The event, which is free to the public, will take place on Saturday, May 14, on the historic Downtown Celina Square from 2:00 – 9:00 pm.
While feasting on one of the largest crawfish boils in Texas, families and friends from around North Texas will enjoy live alligator shows, local vendors offering food, drinks, and unique items, and a large kid’s zone area with inflatables and carnival rides. Country music legend John Michael Montgomery will perform a free concert to close out the event.
“Celina Cajun Fest is our marquee annual event and offers our community and this region a chance to kick-off the summer season with a massive crawfish boil, a chance to enjoy excellent local foods and drinks, and entertainment and music that is enjoyable for all ages,” said Celina Mayor Sean Terry. “This event has grown each year and is something that Celina residents look forward to sharing with friends from all over North Texas. It really gives folks a glimpse of the rich culture that exists here in our community.”
“Celina is so fortunate to have this historic Downtown Square. Celina Cajun Fest gives the Square a chance to come alive each year as thousands stroll through the activities and vendors that make this event so memorable.

Because of the generosity of our community and event sponsors, we look forward to this celebration on May 14,” said Jason Laumer, Celina City Manager.
