The Crawfish Fest will present a Jambalaya Fundraiser at Skylands Stadium in Augusta, Aug. 17.

As previously announced, there will be no Crawfish Fest in New Jersey this summer, though a return is planned for May 30-June 1, 2025. But the Crawfish Fest will present a Jambalaya Fundraiser for The Frankford Township Fire Department, Aug. 17 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. No bands will perform, but chicken and sausage jambalaya will be served.

Food orders must be placed by Aug. 12 so that Crawfish Fest founder Michael Arnone knows how much to cook.

Arnone plans to schedule other Jambalaya Tour stops in July and August, but this is the first one announced.
