The festival features multiple gumbos from local eateries, which participants can enjoy and then vote on their favorite. Gumbo Tasting Passports are $15 each and proceeds go directly to the 2018 Fat Tuesday on Flagler Mardi Gras Parade. There are three available start tents, at Cooper St, and Flagler Avenue.
This event is part of the Mardi Gras Weekend series of events in New Smyrna Beach. Other events include the Voo Doo Music Festival, Voodoo 5K and the Mardi Gras Parade and Party.
