6th Annual Gumbo Cook-Off
Saturday 1-4 pm
Franklin St., Evansville
Eat all the Gumbo your little heart desires at the 6th Annual Gumbo Cook-Off hosted by Franklin Street Events Association (FSEA). Wander up Franklin St. and get into the Mardi Gras spirit by tasting all kinds of Gumbo at participating Franklin St. businesses.
Gumbo fanatics must purchase a $20 keepsake bowl to participate. Bowls can be purchased at Lamasco Bar and Grill, Thyme in the Kitchen, or online. It’s BYOS! FSEA is asking participants to ‘bring their own spoon’ to keep the event as eco-friendly as possible. Spoons will also be available for purchase for $1.
Proceeds from the event benefit local non-profits that will be at each Gumbo Cook-Off location.
