The event’s second edition promises more of the same bold, homegrown flavors, writes 225, but with even more food vendors—some from Texas, Georgia and Mississippi.
“It’s quickly becoming a regional festival,” says Henry Turner, the festival’s director, and it’s also evident in the mix of talent performing at the festival.
The festival’s main events are the two judged soul food cooking competitions. Contestants are judged by a selected panel of experts, who score their creations based on presentation, taste and the story behind each dish. Check out more information on the competition here.
Baton Rouge Soul Food Fest is free on Saturday, May 25, and Sunday, May 26, from 10 a.m.-8 p.m.
