Beignet Festival (Only in New Orleans)
Beignets for days! Well, just one day, technically. Beignet Fest rings in its inaugural ode to deep-fried pastry on Saturday, Oct. 6, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. at New Orleans City Park Festival Grounds. Proceeds from Beignet Festival will benefit Tres Doux Foundation, whose mission is to celebrate and enhance the lives of children with developmental delays and disabilities.
