The competition will include chefs from throughout Oregon and Washington competing to take home one of two titles: “Best Jambalaya,” which will be judged by our panel of professional judges, and “People’s Choice,” in which the public will make the final call.
Admission is free to all festival guests and samples go for just fifty cents. Single servings of your favorite jambalaya are available for $3 or a family-sized portion to take home for dinner for only $3-$5.
