The Sandestin Gumbo FestivalFebruary 10, 2015
There is one aspect of Mardi Gras season that, between the parades, moon pies and beads, we almost always forget about – gumbo! Luckily, we remembered in time for the annual Sandestin Gumbo Festival.
If you own real estate in Destin or a South Walton home, purchase your tickets and get ready to enjoy two nights of delicious Cajun fun! On Friday, February 13, 2015, head to the Village of Baytowne Wharf for the kickoff crawfish boil hosted by Fat Tuesday! Individual plates of boiled goodness are just $3 each.
On Saturday it’s time for the main event – the Gumbo Cookoff! Local chefs will take their turns creating their best version of this culinary treat. Official judges will decided who has the best chicken, seafood or sausage creation, but there is also a People’s Choice Award. That means tasting! Tickets to attend and taste are on sale now for just $20. The weather is expected to be beautiful and just right for this hot event. We hope to see everyone out this weekend!
