ABBEVILLE, La. - The 2021 Giant Omelette Celebration has been cancelled. The Giant Omelette Celebration is a 2 day family friendly festival. Cajun music, food vendors, fabulous juried art show and much more. Sunday afternoon is the cooking of a giant 5,000+ egg omelette in a 12’ skillet over an open fire. The omelette is given away to the public with French bread. It's an international event and free to the public.

Organizers with the event released the following statement:

After much discussion about the Delta Variant of Covid 19 and weighing the gravity of the situation in our area the board of The Giant Omelette Celebration has decided that the safe thing to do is to cancel this year’s celebration. We cannot with a clear conscience put our membership, our vendors, bands and all who come out to help us celebrate in a situation that could lead to the spread of this disease.
Our membership works hard throughout the year to plan a unique, family-friendly, free festival to our community and all the visitors from around the world who show up to celebrate with us. We are passionate about Omelette weekend!! We look forward to being back in 2022 and hope you will join us on November 5th & 6th, 2022!
