The World Championship Gumbo CookOff is a free two-day event that takes place every second weekend in October, in New Iberia, Louisiana. Also known as the "Superbowl of Gumbo", every year dozens of cooking teams and thousands of enthusiasts take over Bouligny Plaza to see who will take home trophies for each category, and earn ultimate bragging rights.

Over 30 years ago, the Greater Iberia Chamber of Commerce set out on a history-changing journey to generate revenue for the chamber, but also celebrate something that we do better than anyone else- cook a wicked gumbo! With less than a dozen chefs serving gumbo off their truck beds in 1989, the event quickly turned into a serious one, with more and more chefs joining the competition every year to show off their culinary skills. Today the event boasts around 100 teams, 30,000 visitors, free live music, and over 100 different gumbos to try!

Categories include Amateur chicken and sausage, Amateur seafood, Amateur Mélange, Professional seafood, and Professional non-seafood.
