2021 International Rice Festival in Crowley, Louisiana

The first Crowley rice festival was held on October 5, 1937. In that long ago day the party was known as the National Rice Festival; it was renamed the “International Rice Festival” in 1946 when the gathering was resumed after a hiatus during World War II.

Last year’s festival was cancelled in the face of the pandemic but Cajuns are nothing if not resolute and the organizers have vowed that this year’s party will be safe for all involved. It is an outdoor affair.

Jimi Madison Joubert, the young maiden who is the fairest of them all in the Crowley area, will continue to wear the crown of Rice Queen due to last year’s party being thwarted by the damnable bug.

It is believed that she is the first young lady to wear the tiara for two consecutive years.

Live music will be blasting from two stages and dozens of tables will be groaning with all manners of Cajun foodstuffs.
