Beignet Fest

November 16, 2024

10:00 AM - 6:00 PM

The 2024 Beignet Fest presented by Children’s Hospital New Orleans is set for Saturday, Nov. 16, 2024 at the Festival Grounds at New Orleans City Park. One of New Orleans’ premier fall festivals, Beignet Fest celebrates the city’s most iconic treat: the beignet – a fried, square donut traditionally topped with powdered sugar.

At Beignet Fest, patrons can try beignets topped or stuffed with a variety of sweet or savory delicacies. The festival’s menu lineup includes more than 80 menu options with nearly 50 unique takes on beignets, including last year’s winners, Loretta’s Praline Beignet and Crabmeat Beignet as well as Old School Eats’s Blackberry Cloud Beignet. New this year are vegan and gluten-free beignets, ice cream stuffed beignets, Bananas Foster beignets, Ruby Slipper Café’s sweet potato cheesecake and espresso praline beignets, and PJ’s pizza beignets that can’t be found anywhere other than at Beignet Fest! Find the full lineup of food vendors here.

Besides beignets, Beignet Fest organizers are planning a full day of live, local music as well as an interactive Kids Village, Artist Market, Coffee Café sponsored by PJ’s Coffee, Beer Garden and other fun activities to showcase the culture of New Orleans.
