Food Festivals


Food and Louisiana--the two go hand in hand. The state's cultural "gumbo" produces a winning recipe for fun with a celebration of a harvest that ranges from A to Z, starting with the oyster festival in Amite and wrapping up with the tamale festival in Zwolle. Some of these festivals can only be found in Louisiana where mudbugs are a staple and Poke Salad topped the record charts. A few of the more unique.
