14th Annual Gumbo Gala

May 4, 2019 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm


Saturday May 4, 2019, 11:00-2:00

Thirteen years ago, Episcopal Place Board members, staff, and volunteers created a fundraising event that would be unique and fun for the community and for the Episcopal Place residents it would benefit.  Four couples from Louisiana had recently moved to Episcopal Place after losing their homes to Hurricane Katrina.  Knowing how much they missed their food, music, and culture, EP staff members developed the concept for Gumbo Gala in their honor.  And the rest is Gumbo Gala history!

Gumbo Gala is . . . . .

  • ​A gumbo cooking competition featuring backyard chefs, professional chefs, and student teams​.

  • Samples of delicious arrays of gumbos from chicken and sausage to seafood and gator.

  • Team competition in a variety of categories for coveted titles, trophies, and bragging rights.

  • The largest gumbo competition in the Southeast!

  •  Fundraiser for Episcopal Place!
