After great success in its debut year, Louisiana Street Food Fest will bring 25+ street food chefs from across the state (plus the Michoud Melody Makers) to the capital on January 19th for a second year.
Louisiana street food is a thriving part of our culture, but often doesn’t get the recognition or celebration it deserves. New Orleans-based culinary curation company My House Social in partnership with The Red Cake Event Planning decided to rectify this by creating a festival around the chefs, creators, and culinary concepts that are well-loved and up-and-coming in the state.
The Second Annual Louisiana Street Food Festival will take place January 19th in downtown Baton Rouge following Saturday’s Louisiana Marathon Finish Fest. Whether running the marathon or cheering on the participants, all are welcome to the festival to eat flavorful dishes from chefs mastering in many different styles of cuisine.
Overwhelmed by the possibilities? Check out our guide to a few favorite picks for this year’s fest. Check out the full list of chefs or follow along on Instagram as My House Social slowly reveals the chef line-up!
