Looking for a weekend getaway? Pop on over to New Orleans who has added a new festival to its list. Beignet Fest makes the 133rd festival held in the Big Easy. Every single month of the year you can find festivals centered around food, music, and arts with the biggest of course being Mardi Gras. The newest addition is the first of its kind. Yes, it's the first-ever Beignet Fest!


Held in Lafayette Square, participating restaurants include Howlin' Wolf Den, Cafe' Maspero, Royal House, New Orleans Coffee and Beignet House, and many more. The offerings include everything from Bananas Foster Beignets to Fish or Oyster Beignets, and everything in between. 


Not only will you enjoy amazing beignet creations in one of the tastiest cities in the country, you will also be supporting a wonderful cause, the Tres Doux Foundation, which will make grants to local nonprofit organizations that provide for accessible, quality programs for children with developmental delays.
