New Smyrna Beach Gumbo Festival
February 16 @ 4:00 pm - 8:00 pm$15.00
Nothing Says Mardi Gras like the New Smyrna Beach Gumbo Challenge happening Tuesday, February 16th, from 4 pm -8 pm! Taste unique and savory takes on the classic New Orleans Gumbos at host locations on Flagler Avenue and vote for your favorites! Winning Gumbo creations and their creators receive “Best at the Beach” awards.
We are adding a little spice to the event with 12 lucky winners receiving “Dinner on Us for the Rest of 2021” with the NSB Fleur de Key Contest, brought to you by NSBFoodie.com and the Flagler Avenue Hospitality Group! At multiple host locations, passport holders will be given a key that can be used to open the Treasure Chest boxes located at the Welcome Tent. Participants with at least one key that opens the Treasure Chest box will receive gift certificates each valid for a particular month for the rest of 2021 from various restaurants and eateries on Flagler Avenue.
Like other food challenges on Flagler Avenue, guests use their tasting passports to visit host sites and sample their Gumbo. Tasting passports and spoons are picked up at the “Start Here” Welcome Tent at the corner of Cooper Street and Flagler Avenue. Day off event passport sales starts at 3:30 pm. However, we strongly suggest pre-ordering your passport as WE COULD SELL OUT!
Participation is just $15 and is sure to be a flavorsome event!
