There’s nothing like a warm bowl of Creole or Cajun gumbo to warm you up when the wintry weather kicks in. For the gumbo aficionado, a bowl of the stuff—whether it’s made with chicken, sausage or seafood—is even worth sweating through on a hot summer day. But getting to the bottom of the pot is bad news. Well here’s some good news. Imagine multiple pots of gumbo. Imagine people celebrating those pots of gumbo. Imagine no more when you’re standing in the midst of a gumbo festival. Fun fact: you don’t have to be in Louisiana to find one. Just keep your eyes peeled to this page and you might be lucky enough to find a gumbo festival nearby.
