Another year, another Beignet Fest at the Festival Grounds at New Orleans City Park. So, bring your appetite and fill up on delicious, decadent delicacies from traditional sweet treats covered in powdered sugar to savory options bursting with seafood, cheese and more.
In addition to the dozens of different beignet dishes from some of New Orleans' best restaurants, caterers, and food trucks, the fest promises to be a family-friendly fun day with live, local music performances, a Kids Village, Artist Market, and Beer Garden.
Proceeds from Beignet Fest benefit the Beignet Fest Foundation.
The mission of the Beignet Fest Foundation is to celebrate, embrace and enhance the lives of children with developmental delays and disabilities by presenting them as whole beings, and to support organizations that do the same.
With proceeds from the Beignet Fest, the Beignet Fest Foundation makes grants to local nonprofit organizations that provide accessible, quality programs for children with developmental delays.
Through our journey with our son, we found a gap in programs for children on the autism spectrum, and we wanted to change that.
