Start your fryers and grab a café au lait; the second annual Beignet Festival returns to New Orleans on December 2 with an expanded location at the Festival Grounds at City Park. Attendees will dine on several varieties of New Orleans’ favorite fried treat from a multitude of local vendors while they enjoy a lineup of live music acts.
For the second installment of the festival, organizers are introducing a VIP experience. In addition to an exclusive shaded tent with a prime viewing area and a dedicated restroom, the VIP area will treat guests to complimentary Abita beer, cold brew coffee from French Market Coffee, and mimosas from Barefoot Wines.
