Battle of the Gumbo Gladiators

Festival Details - "Battle of the Gumbo Gladiators"...

Let's get ready to gumbooooo! Join us at the Battle of the Gumbo Gladiators March 21, a fierce annual gumbo competition at Festival Plaza in downtown Shreveport, supporting Volunteers for Youth Justice. Teams from across the region, state and beyond compete for gumbo glory in three categories: chicken/sausage, seafood and lagniappe. Entrance to the event is free but to sample the 50+ gumbos you must purchase tickets onsite, cash and cards are accepted. There is an ATM onsite. Each attendee receives a People's Choice voting token to select your favorite gumbo. Winners of People's Choice and the Judged Categories will be announced at 4 pm. There will be activities for children on site. Non-gumbo food and desserts are available for purchase, as well as water, soft drinks and alcoholic beverages (21+, ID required). Gumbo Gladiator merchandise is available (the gumbo bowls are a big hit!) and a great reminder of the delicious time that awaits you. All proceeds of this event support Volunteers for Youth Justice, a non-profit organization providing a community caring for children, youth and families in crisis in NWLA.
