This past Saturday, Sept. 23, nearly 12,000 people flocked to City Park for the 6th Annual Beignet Fest, presented by Children’s Hospital New Orleans.
With more than 50 unique takes on beignets, The Vintage NOLA’s Pear & Brie Beignet took home the coveted “Judge’s Choice” award while Old School Eats’ Blackberry Cloud Beignet and Loretta’s Authentic Pralines’ Famous Crabmeat Beignet were voted the crowd favorites.
All proceeds from Beignet Fest benefit the Beignet Fest Foundation, whose mission is to celebrate, embrace and empower the lives of children with autism and their families.
