WHAT: 6th Annual Oyster Jubilee
The Louisiana Seafood Promotion and Marketing Board and New Orleans Musical Legends, Inc. are hosting the 6th annual Louisiana Oyster Jubilee. The Oyster Jubilee celebrates the local delicacy that is an integral part of the unique culinary culture of Louisiana.

The Jubilee will feature the Longest Oyster Po-Boy, built by over 30 of New Orleans' renowned restaurants. The colossal po-boy will be stuffed with 5,500 Louisiana harvested oysters and sprawl across 340 feet of Bourbon Street. After the ceremonial cutting, the po-boy will be distributed to oyster lovers and is expected to be devoured within minutes. Chefs will compete to win the title of the "Best Oyster Po-Boy" in New Orleans. Half of the longest po-boy will be judged for the competition and the other half will be distributed to Jubilee-goers.
