A Taste of Louisiana Food Festival & Cook-Off is a family-friendly event that celebrates the food and culture of Louisiana right here in Birmingham, while helping a worthy cause. Proceeds from this year's event will help fund pediatric cancer research through the Sid Strong Foundation and college scholarships for local Alabama residents.


Visitors will enjoy great Louisiana food like jambalaya, gumbo, etouffee, red beans and rice, boudin, bread pudding, and much more, prepared by local restaurants and individuals. There will also be a children's area with games and activities.

Do you have a favorite recipe that you think has what it takes to be voted #1? Then register now to compete in the Cook-Off (see Sponsorship and Cooking Competition Info for details). This event is a great opportunity to get your business' name out in the community, support a worthy cause and have a lot of fun.
