NEW IBERIA, La. -The in-person 31st Annual World Championship Gumbo Cookoff will celebrate the theme “The Wizard of Roux Returns.”

The Greater Iberia Chamber of Commerce is bringing all the magic that took place virtually last year, to Bouligny Plaza for an in-person event October 9 - 10, 2021.

Stay tuned for the poster contest announcement, band lineup, event schedule, merchandise releases, and more. Follow the festival on Facebook and sign up for email on their homepage, www.IberiaChamber.org.

Hosted by the Greater Iberia Chamber of Commerce, the Gumbo Cookoff has been showcasing the best attributes of the community and helping to spotlight local business since 1989, all while stimulating New Iberia’s economy.
