The Second Annual Beignet Fest will take place at the City Park Festival Gounds on October 7, 2017 from 10AM-6PM. More info is available at www.beignetfest.com
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 serves up the best beignets in the South. In true New Orleans tradition, Beignet Fest features a myriad of restaurant vendors; local and regional musical entertainment; and family-friendly activities in the Kid’s Village presented by Ochsner Hospital for Children.
All proceeds from Beignet Fest benefit the 501c3 nonprofit organization, Tres Doux Foundation. The mission of the Tres Doux Foundation 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.
Each year, the Tres Doux Foundation makes grants to support New Orleans-area programs that serve children with development delays.
