Sample Louisiana's signature soup made by local chefs and superb home cooks at the 9th Annual Northshore Gumbo Cook-Off!

Held on the grounds of Slidell Little Theatre off Fremaux Town Center Parkway, the event features up to 30 teams cooking their best gumbo, live entertainment, awards and more. The Northshore Gumbo Cook-Off will be hosted by John ‘Spud’ McConnell, a veteran stage and film actor and a seasoned radio and television personality. Spud has recently returned to the radio, hosting a weekday morning show on 106.7 FM.

Admission is $10 per person for all-you-can-eat gumbo, children under the age of 10 are admitted free.

The cook-off is a cooperative effort of Slidell Little Theatre (SLT) and the Northshore Chapter of the National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC) to raise funds for local projects that will enrich the lives of the community through the arts, education and area youth programs.

Slidell Little Theatre is located just off the I-10 Fremaux Center exit at 2024 Nellie Drive. For more information about SLT, please visit or email
