Beignet Fest Is the Powered Sugar Palooza You Have Been Dreaming Of—Do Not Miss It!

Bring plenty of wet wipes because the powdered sugar palooza— aka Beignet Fest –is back for its fourth annual event. Hosted at the City Park Fairgrounds, Beignet Fest is a celebration of one of NOLA’s all-time favorite sweet treats: beignets.

The 4th Annual Beignet Fest is set for Saturday, October 5th from 10 am to 6 pm at the Festival Grounds at New Orleans City Park. From traditional sweet treats covered in powdered sugar to savory options bursting with seafood, cheese, and more, Beignet Fest will feature more than 30 beignet dishes from some of New Orleans' best restaurants and food trucks. In true NOLA style, the festival also features live, local music performances, a Kid's Village, Artist Market, and VIP Experience.

The mission of the host of this festival, 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. With proceeds from the Beignet Fest, the Tres Doux Foundation makes grants to local nonprofit organizations that provide accessible, quality programs for the children.

General Admission is $5 per person. Children 12 years old and under are free with paying adult.

Proceeds benefit the Tres Doux Foundation, which supports local nonprofit programs that serve children with autism and related developmental differences. A VIP Experience is also available for $40 per person. Tickets can be purchased now at www.beignetfest.com.

While we provide plenty of on-site entertainment at Brookstone Park Apartments in Covington, Louisiana, we believe that having fun within your larger community is equally as important. Do just that during this event on Saturday!
