FoodFest: America’s Hometown Eats

Sat, Mar 23, 2013
through Sun, Mar 24, 2013

Saturday, March 23: 11 a.m. – 7 p.m.
Sunday, March 24: 11 a.m. – 6 p.m. (Beignet Eating Contest is on Sunday at 1 pm)

Sample over 50 America's hometown eats from around the country. Four blocks in the French Market will be lined with dozens of America's best hometown eats from all across America, each offering a unique specialty.

This is NOT typical and expected festival fare: it is a taste of America's most celebrated dishes, all gathered in one place: a foodie's dream. Portions are right-sized and priced to provide everyone a chance to taste the maximum number of great regional eats as they stroll through the French Market inhaling delicious smells that range from real Texas pit barbecue to Pecan Pie to artisan boudin sausage made by Cajun country's most beloved butchers.

There is no admission fee; just bring plenty of appetite. For more information, visit or call (504) 888-7608.

WWOZ will be at the FoodFest! Many of you are already starting to dream about savoring Mango Freeze an entire month in advance. Well, now you can! We'll be selling Mango Freeze, Mango Rhumba (packed with a Caribbean punch) and our WWOZ cookbook That Sounds Good! from our tent near the Main Stage at the Old U.S. Mint this weekend!
