Come ‘Stir the Pot’ and Compete for Gumbo Champion, or enjoy delicious all-you-can-eat gumbo, kids activities, and live entertainment!
To become a challenger, you must agree to cook your gumbo using a butane burner and your own roux made from scratch on-site or using a jarred roux. Teams will compete in seafood and non-seafood categories, vying for the title of GUMBO CHAMPION! Awards will also be presented for People’s Choice and Best Decorated Booth.
Team fees are $75 for any participating business and $25 for non-profit organizations. The event is open to the public throughout the day, with delicious hot gumbo ready at 11:30 am. A $10 gate fee will allow entrants to sample an unlimited amount of mouth-watering gumbos. We also hope you will add to the event by decorating your booth. Live music by Horace Trahan & the Ossun Express will begin at 11:00 am and will continue through the afternoon. Other events and attractions are planned for the day. A complete listing of the rules and guidelines are included, along with a participation form can be found here. Please join us for the 18th Annual Gumbo Cook-off, and support the Acadia Parish Chamber of Commerce!
