A Food & Music Festival

You can’t get a more authentic slice of New Orleans than this two-day food and music festival, featuring ton’s of fresh boiled crawfish seasoned New Orleans Cajun style, plenty of jambalaya, gumbo, red beans & rice, sizzling hot blackened spicy chicken and even a little fried alligator.


Festival goers will sample and help judge the New Orleans style gumbo and jambalaya from the many vendors competing in the “Gumbo & Jambalaya Cook Off.”


The “Taste of New Orleans Festival” will be held Saturday and Sunday, November 2nd & 3rd 2002 @ Summerlin Hills Park (9099 Hillspointe between Rampart and Hill Street in Summerlin) Music begins at Noon each day and ends with an all band and staff finale at 10:00 PM each night.
