Iberia, La - The most important part of tradition is the passing of customs from one generation to the next. The World Championship Gumbo CookOff takes pride in continuing the tradition of cooking a delicious gumbo through the Youth World Championship Gumbo CookOff every year.

This year, the event is proudly sponsored by LA Classic Roofing. If you are between the ages of 9 & 17, and want to be part of this global event, contact Gumbo Headquarters (Chamber Office) at 337-364-1836. The event takes place on the Saturday of Gumbo Weekend (October 9th & 10th), and serving begins at 3pm.

The Chamber’s friends at LA Classic Roofing will assist your team in finding a competing gumbo team to sponsor your group as you prepare and compete just like an official gumbo team would! Don’t miss this valuable opportunity to honor tradition, listen to live music, and celebrate what we do best- gumbo!
