2020 Louisiana Redfish Festival Car Show & Redfish World Series Championship Weigh-In!

Charity Car Display Presented by the St. Bernard Rodknockers

Admission: FREE with donations accepted at the gate


Countdown to the 2020 Event








About Us

Due to the changing times of 2020, we will not be hosting a traditional festival this year. Instead, we will be hosting a car show prior to the live weigh-ins where we will award $200,000 total in cash awards as part of the Redfish World Series!

Join us as the St. Bernard Rodknockers present their classic cars and enjoy some great food from 1:00pm-6:00pm! You can also meet the newly crowned St. Bernard Redfish Queens and the Miss Sportsman’s Paradise USA titleholders who will be on hand all day at the event and taking part in the RWS festivities! Beginning at 4:30, the anglers of the Redfish World Series will drive past the stage for the LIVE weigh-ins. The winners will be awarded a custom bronze redfish trophy, championship rings, and a check for $50,000!

The Louisiana Redfish Festival is held annually on the grounds of the Frederick J. Sigur Civic Center in Chalmette, Louisiana in conjunction with the Redfish World Series. The festival celebrates  “The Redfish Capital of the World” and the redfish that is responsible for the influx of so many tourism dollars to St. Bernard and surrounding parishes every year.  As part of the festival and World Series, we host a Miss St. Bernard Parish Redfish Pageant to crown a Teen and Miss Queen to reign over the weekend’s festivities and represent our organization throughout the year across the state of Louisiana.

St. Bernard Parish is THE place to come for amazing redfish action, incredible food, colorful history, and the friendliest people anywhere on the planet. Plus, come watch the live weigh-in on stage for the Redfish World Series where the winning anglers will claim the title of World Champions and take home a check for $50,000!

Our Official Charitable Partner: Wish to Fish Louisiana

Wish to Fish Louisiana was organized with a goal to get kids off the streets, out of the house, away from the TV and video games and into the great outdoors.

It is easy for us to SAY take your child fishing, however, due to lack of equipment and other essentials needed for a day on the water not everyone has the ability to just pack up and take their kids fishing.  Therefore, some children may not get the chance to experience a fishing in Sportsman’s Paradise.  Wish to Fish offers kids that chance with emphasis on the importance of conservation and exploration.

In 2019, the Louisiana Redfish Festival & Redfish World Series donated $25,000 to Wish to Fish Louisiana!
