The Louisiana Food + Wine Festival, hosted by Visit Lake Charles, will celebrate the best of Louisiana and the South, from its culinary superstars and beverage experts to southwest Louisiana’s unique Cajun and Creole heritage and culture, seafood, artisans, live musicians and more.

One of the South’s leading culinary festival event management companies, The AdFish Group, creators of the Savannah Food & Wine Festival, the St. Augustine Food + Wine Festival, Whiskey, Wine & Wildlife and numerous other culinary destination events, is producing the Louisiana Food + Wine Festival.

The AdFish Group has helped raise over $500,000 in charitable contributions to non-profit organizations through its various festivals over the past 10 years. The United Way of Southwest Louisiana and SOWELA are Official Festival Charity Partners. The Louisiana Food + Wine Festival will explore the South’s evolving food and beverage culture through all-inclusive tasting events, learning experiences, and a finale Jazz Brunch, which showcases Louisiana at every event. From incredible barbecue to world-class Louisiana seafood, the festival is a fall favorite for locals and visitors alike.
