What You Need To Know
Bridge City’s “World Famous” gumbo is cooked daily at the festival grounds and over 2,000 gallons of both seafood and chicken/sausage gumbo will be prepared for our attendees during the festival.
A variety of other native Louisiana cuisine such as jambalaya, New Orleans-style red beans and rice with sausage, hamburgers, hot dogs, fried seafood, homemade cakes and candies, funnel cakes and many other delicious surprises will also be available.
Because Cajun folk traditions are rooted in an appreciation for food, our Cajun cooks challenge champions in the Gumbo Cooking Contest, and invite everyone to enter.
Continuous live entertainment and a fais-do-do (dance) area provide a focal point for the festival’s outdoor activities. Appearances by local and visiting bands of Cajun, country, zydeco, jazz, blues and rock music highlight the weekend’s attractions. Parking is free to the public. Admission to the fairgrounds is $5 per attendee.
Miss Creole Gumbo and King Creole Gumbo will be present to greet and welcome attendees. The Gumbo Festival will be open to arts and crafts vendors to sell their goods and products.
