Boudin Cook-Off & Bacon Festival

October 17, 2020
Parc International

You can’t think Louisiana without imagining the numerous culinary delicacies Cajuns enjoy. For the past decade, one of those dishes has drawn hundreds to Parc Sans Souci in Downtown Lafayette for a celebration and competition all centered around boudin. First dreamt up by University of Louisiana at Lafayette history professor Robert Carriker, Lafayette’s Boudin Cook-Off was established as a means of showcasing the talents of boudin makers from across the state.
