The Bridge City Gumbo Festival is a celebration of when Governor Edwin Edwards, in 1973, declared that Bridge City is the Gumbo Capital of the World.  The festival supports the Holy Guardian Angels Church.

Great Food: Gumbo, Red Beans, Jambalaya, Seafood Plates, Funnel Cakes, Hamburger, Hot Dogs and Pizza, homemade sweets to name a few.

Family Festival: large carnival rides and children’s games, in an enclosed safe environment.

FREE Gumbo Cooking contest on Saturday... Bring a gallon of your best gumbo and the list of its ingredients to the rectory before noon and a panel of judges will select the best gumbo.
