Annual Gumbo Festival
It is not Louisiana without some good old-fashioned gumbo to warm your belly, and Bridge City is the king of gumbo in these parts. This traditional Cajun cuisine stems all the way back to the 18th century, and is still going strong to this day. People in Louisiana love it so much it actually became the official state dish. There is no better way to celebrate a cuisine than getting a bunch of master chefs together under one tent and having them make the best gumbo they can whip up, and that is exactly what happens every year in Bridge City.
