Battle of the Gumbo Gladiators
March 24 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pmFree
Volunteers for Youth Justice (VYJ) is hosting the sixth annual Battle of the Gumbo Gladiators, a gumbo cook-off fundraiser, to help abused, neglected and at-risk children throughout Northwest Louisiana. Approximately 5,000 people attended our event last year with 47 teams cooking 62 pots of gumbo. – it was again a success and we got tons of great coverage from radio, television, print and online media outlets in the Ark-La-Tex.
Battle of the Gumbo Gladiators will be held Saturday, March 24, 2018 at Festival Plaza in downtown Shreveport, Louisiana. The event will feature approximately 50+ gumbo teams battling for victory and a team of judges deciding who will be crowned “Ultimate Gumbo Gladiator.”
