August 1 2021 | What's New

Event Canceled on August 17 due to Covid-19 Concerns.

Cafe Beignet is a previous first-place winner in the "Best Traditional Beignet" category.

Take a sweet break from the same-old, same-old and join us on the Festival Grounds in New Orleans City Park for the annual Beignet Fest. The powdered sugar will fly on Saturday, September 25, 2021 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. When it comes to October festivals in New Orleans, this is one you donut want to pass up! (Sorry.)

Of course, there’s more than one way to beignet. There will be traditional beignets covered in powdered sugar along with more savory options filled and topped with seafood, cheese and more. Come get your fill of more than 30 beignet dishes from some of New Orleans' best restaurants and food trucks.

This free New Orleans festival will also offer live bands, an Artist Market and a Kid's Village. Plus, you’ll be beigneting for a good cause: Proceeds from the event benefit the Tres Doux Foundation, an organization that makes grants to nonprofits serving children with developmental delays.
