Cooking in Central Festival

March 25

Cooking in Central is back this year, this time to raise money for the continued Hurricane Ida relief efforts in Lower Terrebonne Parish. The city’s “largest crawfish boil” begins a 5 pm Friday for $20 a plate, with the Progressive Auction starting at 6 pm, and The Molly Ringwalds playing at 7 pm. On Saturday festival gates open at 2 pm, with music from the School of Rock Band starting at 4 pm. Starting at 5 pm Saturday attendees can enjoy the delicious outcome of the barbecue cook-off for $15 a plate, which includes jambalaya, cochon de lait, barbecue chicken, and pork roast. Entertainment continues into Saturday night with the Chase Tyler Band at 7 pm, with children’s activities, auctions, and other fun throughout the weekend. Tickets are available at all Central public schools, the Central Chamber of Commerce, and Ross Tire and Service. For more information and cook-off entry forms, visit cookingincentral.com.
