With a festival for every cuisine imaginable in the Crescent City – from Oyster Fest to Fried Chicken Festival to French Market Creole Tomato Festival (just to name a few), it’s a surprise that 2016 marked the first ever New Orleans Beignet Fest. Beignet Festival aims to celebrate and honor this timeless French pastry with a variety of local vendors, live entertainment, and kid’s events in Lafayette Square of Downtown New Orleans. Spend a day enjoying various takes on this deep-fried, doughy pastry – from sweet to savory and classic to innovative.

Event Information

Local food vendors will be scattered throughout the Square. Previous vendors have included Café du Monde, Café Beignet, and New Orleans Coffee and Beignet Co., among others. Incredible musicians provide entertainment throughout the day, and a Kid’s Village ensures fun for the whole family.
