Didn’t get a Benny Plush at the Festival? Get it HERE!

The Beignet Fest was founded by Amy & Sherwood Collins when they realized the need for programs for autistic children in New Orleans were lacking. All proceeds from Beignet Fest benefit the 501c3 nonprofit organization, 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. Each year, the Beignet Fest Foundation makes grants to support New Orleans-area programs that serve children with development delays.

All shifts are full for 2023! Thanks for signing up!
