Beignet Fest Announces VIP Experience for 2nd Annual Festival

Amenities include shaded area, complimentary beverages, private restrooms and more

New Orleans, LA (August 16, 2017) - The 2nd Annual Beignet Fest, which will take place on Saturday, October 7, 2017 from 10AM - 6PM at the Festival Grounds at City Park, announces its first VIP Experience for revelers.

"Each year we want to continue to improve our offerings for festival-goers," said Festival Founder and Event Producer Sherwood Collins. "Beignet Fest's new VIP Experience will allow attendees to enjoy added amenities like complimentary beer, cold brew coffee and mimosas while watching the musical entertainment."

The VIP Experience will include unlimited access to a shaded tent and a prime, private viewing area with a dedicated
restroom. VIPs will also be treated to Abita Beer and French Market Coffee cold brew coffee as well as mimosas, courtesy of Barefoot Wines. VIP Experience tickets are $50 and may be purchased on Beignet Fest's website before the festival.

"We love pairing iconic Louisiana brands - like Abita Beer and French Market Coffee with ever-popular mimosas from
Barefoot," Collins continued. These offerings will perfectly complement all the different beignets our food vendors are offering for sale this year. We can't wait to see everyone enjoying the VIP Experience on October 7."

Amy and Sherwood Collins created Beignet Fest and the Tres Doux Foundation with a mission to celebrate, embrace and enhance the lives of children with developmental delays and disabilities by presenting them as whole beings, and to support organizations that do the same.

Once again, Ochsner Hospital for Children will present the Kids' Village - complete with sensory friendly activities, as well as fun for all children. Other Beignet Fest sponsors include French Market Coffee, Abita Beer, Gambel Communications, Deep Fried Advertising, The New Orleans Advocate, New Orleans Coffee & Beignet Company, Gulf Coast Bank & Trust Co., New Orleans Tourism Marketing Corporation, Barefoot Wines, River Parish Disposal, Regions Bank, The Ruby Slipper Café, NOLA Family, Louisiana Life, Villere's Florist and Adams and Reese, LLP.
