The 6th Annual Louisiana Oyster Jubilee is the biggest oyster party in New Orleans

Special "White Coat Brigade" tribute planned for Louisiana oysterman Mike Voisin as part of this year's Louisiana Oyster Jubilee

WHAT: 6th Annual Louisiana 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.

Chefs will compete to win the title of the "Best Oyster Po-Boy" in New Orleans. Some of the restaurants will present their version of the oyster po-boy to a team of judges for the competition.

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 for free to oyster lovers in the 300 block of Bourbon Street and is expected to be devoured within minutes.

Special to this year's Oyster Jubilee, at 11 a.m. the "White Coat Brigade," which includes area chefs and doctors from Terrebonne General Medical Center, will march down Bourbon Street to center stage where they will make a special announcement about a tribute appearing soon in area restaurants for Louisiana oysterman Mike Voisin.  Voisin, CEO of Motivatit Seafood and Gulf seafood industry advocate passed away on February 2, 2013 and the restaurant community has developed a creative way to honor him for the contributions he made to the seafood and restaurant communities.

WHEN: Saturday, March 9, 2013           9:30 am - 1 pm
9:30 am                Oyster Po-boy Chefs Competition
11:00 am              Special tribute to Louisiana oysterman Mike Voisin, CEO of Motivatit Seafood & Gulf seafood industry advocate
