The 2017 event attracted over 5,000 attendees who sampled 62 entries prepared by 48 teams. We are looking for teams of passionate home and tailgating cooks, caterers or professional chefs. A blind judging process involves more than 30 judges who will select the top three winning teams for each of the categories….Seafood, Chicken/Sausage and Lagniappe. Each winning team will receive $400 cash prize plus trophy and medals!

Gates open at noon and close at 5:00 pm. Awards will take place at 4:00. Admission is FREE and gumbo samples are only $2 each. In addition to the gumbo tasting, there will be a Children’s Area provided by Bayou Bounce and a variety of food trucks.
