Join us for the Inaugural Beignet Fest at Lafayette Square. Beignet Fest celebrates New Orleans' most iconic dessert: the beignet. From traditional sweet treats to savory delicacies that feature seafood, cheese and more, Beignet Fest 2016 is serving up the best beignets in the South.
In true New Orleans tradition, Beignet Fest will feature a myriad of restaurant vendors; local and regional musical entertainment; and family-friendly activities in the Kid's Village. The festival is free and open to the public with beignets and beverages available for sale.
Amy and Sherwood Collins created Beignet Fest to raise awareness and funds for autism programs in New Orleans, with a portion of food and beverage sales benefiting the Tres Doux Foundation. The Foundation's mission is 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.
