April 11-13th at The Wharf in Orange Beach the inaugural L.A. Gumbo Festival is set to kick off with the unveiling of the world’s largest pot of gumbo! The festivities will begin on April 11th at 7 pm just before the start of the Kenny Chesney concert at The Wharf Amphitheater.
The L.A. Gumbo Festival got its start when Bob Baumhower teamed with Chef Folse more than a year ago during the 2011 Alabama vs. LSU football game to feed the victims of the tornadoes that devastated parts of Tuscaloosa. The fundraiser was such a success they have decided to do it again!
Tickets for tasting the gumbo can be bought at $2 a piece or $20 for 30 tastings. Entry to the event is free. All proceeds will be shared between Louisiana’s and Alabama’s charities of choice.
Over the three day festival you can except to see a few celebrity faces out and about to show their support of the event. There will also be arts & crafts, children’s activities, live music, cooking activities and voting for The Best Overall Gumbo Booth.
