Click here to watch an interview with one of the Gumbo Cookoff's biggest supporters; Cypress Bayou Casino Hotel!


The Saturday of the World Championship Gumbo Cookoff has been rightfully dubbed the "Cajun Creole Foodfest", where teams who will be competing the following day in the Gumbo Cookoff have the chance to showcase their culinary skills by cooking any dish of their choosing! There's no telling what you'll find in Bouligny Plaza, but you can rest assured that it'll make for a delicious lunch option. While you find a new savory dish or an old favorite, make sure to check out the free live music at the event! Teams set their own prices on Saturday, but the currency is always the same- gumbo tickets will be used to purchase food and drinks. Read more about tickets on our FAQ page.


See you in October, cher!
