UPDATE: The Bayou Church announced today that the annual Chili/Gumbo Cook-off scheduled for Sunday, November 11 from 3:00 pm to 5:00 pm has been canceled.
Orgnaizers said the field where the event takes place is too wet to host the event.
Several varieties of chili and gumbo will be available for tasting during the event. All chili and gumbo connoisseurs in Acadiana are asked to attend and help pick the best of the best. A winner in each category will be chosen by a “people’s choice vote.” Thirty-six teams will compete for top prize.
The event is free to attend and is focused on gathering the community together and enjoy a fun day with family and friends.
