With a celebration for almost every food and beverage imaginable, it’s no surprise that the city honors this deliciously iconic French treat with a festival.

The Event

The festival is held every year in New Orleans. Proceeds from Beignet Festival benefit the Tres Doux Foundation, whose mission is to celebrate and enhance the lives of children with developmental delays and disabilities.

Sample every type of beignet – from sweet to savory and classic to innovative. Crawfish beignets, fried chicken and beignets and Oreo beignets are just a few of the offerings.

Incredible local musicians will take the stage throughout the day at Beignet Fest to add to the celebration. Check back for this year’s official lineup of musicians and participating restaurants.

Special Events
