The Hutto Chamber of Commerce will host the annual crawfish festival and car show April 17 from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. in downtown Hutto.

Around 70 food and retail vendors will have booths from East Street to West Pecan Street and Farley Street to FM 1660, with downtown Hutto business doors open as well, said Sonia Herrera, the chamber's finance and information specialist. The chief sponsor for the event is Alliance Auto Auction in Austin, which donated $2,500 to offset costs for the festival, she said.

The crawfish boil is $16 a plate and includes a pound and a half of crawfish, Herrera said. Hot dogs and sausage wraps will be available as well.

Vendors will include Tropical Sno shaved ice, ATX Homemade Jerky, Scentsy scented products and Pecos Pete's Natural Tea and Soda, she said.

There will also be live music from country music singer Pete Benz, who will perform from 11 a.m.-2 p.m., Herrera said.


Hutto Professional Firefighters Association will host a car show, which will take place for the duration of the festival. Registration for the car show is $20 and any car can participate, she said. To register, contact association president Levy Chuey through email chuey@huttofirerescue.org or call 737-259-1641.

Social distancing and masks are recommended for the outdoor event, Herrera said.
