‘225 Dine:’ Fill up at the Louisiana Street Food Festival

New Orleans event company My House Social and Baton Rouge’s The Red Cake Events are hosting the second annual Louisiana Street Food Festival downtown.

As 225 reports, more than 25 Louisiana chefs and food vendors will line River Road in front of the Raising Cane’s River Center to serve unique dishes from food trucks and pop-up tents on Saturday. Alongside Baton Rouge vendors, chefs and food trucks will drive in from New Orleans, Lake Charles, Shreveport, Slidell and Lafayette for the festival.

The Louisiana Street Food Festival is held in conjunction with the Louisiana Marathon, providing another component to the busy marathon weekend and a chance for runners to grab a bite after the Saturday 5K race, the full and half marathons take place Sunday. Locals and hungry marathon runners can taste everything from Jamaican to Japanese cuisine. Vendors will be serving fresh sushi, wood-fired pizza, barbecue ribs, gourmet loaded fries, crepes, loaded waffles, artisan ice cream and cupcakes.
