Musical lineup and vendors announced for 2018 Beignet Fest

Organizers have announced the details for the 3rd Annual Beignet Fest, which takes place on Saturday, October 6 at City Park’s Festival Grounds.

Festival founder Sherwood Collins says this year’s iteration will be the biggest yet, with “more beignet dishes that ever before, bigger musical acts – and we also have the benefit of a title sponsor for 2018 with local favorite, French Market Coffee.”

“Nothing goes better with beignets than great, New Orleans coffee!,” said Eleanor Holstein, brand manager for French Market Coffee at Reily Foods Company.
