Gumbo Gala

Presented by Episcopal Place at Cahaba Brewing Company, Birmingham AL

Apr 30 2022
Gumbo Gala

Gumbo Gala is one of the largest gumbo competitions in the South and fun for the whole family with live music, cold beverages, artisans’ fair, and a kids’ zone. Proceeds from Gumbo Gala support Episcopal Place.

No two gumbo recipes are quite the same, a culinary fact that makes this Creole and Cajun favorite as versatile as it is delicious. The stew gets its biggest chance to shine at the 17th Annual Gumbo Gala, a one-day cook-off held by Birmingham’s Episcopal Place. Gumbo teams from the region gather around their simmer pots, with each one attempting to impress both crowds of samplers and the panel of judges who crown each year’s winners. Visitors are allowed to taste as many samples as they wish
