Register for the 10th-annual Pinch A Palooza Crawfish Eating Contest

Watching a horde of contestants pinching and peeling feverishly is good family fun. Pinch A Palooza Festival 2019 will offer crawfish lovers the chance to be named the Pinch A Palooza Crawfish Eating Contest Champion and great prizes, including a catered Deanie’s crawfish boil for 20! With cheering and encouragement from the crowd and teasing from the judges, contestants require nerves of steel and veins of cayenne to reach the top and be named our champion.

For the 10th year, Deanie’s Seafood will present the Pinch A Palooza Crawfish Eating Contest for crawfish-lovers who want a chance to test their pinch, peel and eat mettle!

Our contest consists of two heats of approximately 18 contestants competing to challenge the fastest boiled crawfish eater in a final round. Great prizes are awarded to both heat winners, including a Deanie’s Seafood Crawfish Boil for 20 people for our Champion and other goodies.

For heat 1 and heat 2, participants compete to be the first to finish eating 3 lbs. of boiled crawfish. The contestants in our title round start off with 10 lbs. of crawfish. The champion will be the contestant who eats the most crawfish in 10 minutes. Participants are encouraged to bring their very own cheerleading krewe to root them on!!!

All our contestants receive a Pinch A Palooza T-shirt with their $20 entry fee. Registration is open to individuals age 18 and up. (Contest fee is paid the day of the event.) Each participant must complete a waiver. Register to compete below now.

The contest is judged by weighing the remaining uneaten crawfish of the two top contestants in the final round. The winner is the contestant with the least amount of uneaten leftover crawfish, calculated by weight. The amount of crawfish meat eaten is determined by weighing the discards and subtracting from the original weight.

Do you have what it takes to compete?
