Waterway Village

Waterway Village Gulf Shores

Discover the Culture and Charm of Gulf Shores

Waterway Village has begun to take shape along both sides of the Intracoastal Waterway and a unique downtown atmosphere is transforming some of Gulf Shores’ most historic real estate. Its pedestrian friendly design features quaint streets with tree-lined sidewalks, decorative lamp posts and inviting seating areas offering residents and visitors a year-round destination to dine, shop and play.

Waterway Village Zydeco & Crawfish Festival 

April 14, 2018 - 10 a.m. - 6 p.m. 

If you attended our festival and would like to leave some feedback, please take our survey here!

 The Waterway Village Zydeco & Crawfish Festival boils up a beaucoup (French for a lot) of fun!  Sink your teeth into hot, juicy, lip-smacking crawfish throughout the day while dancing to the infectious rhythms of some of the best Zydeco bands from around the South.  There will be arts and crafts vendors as well as children's activities offering nonstop fun for all ages.

If that's not enough, work up an appetite with the 5K Run/1 Mile Fun Run and Laissez les bons temps rouler (let the good times roll) all day long.
