Overload your senses at the third annual Bayou Jamboree and Crawfish Boil at 2nd Saturday Nites in Historic Market Square on Saturday, May 14, 2016.

Historic Market Square’s new free monthly event series, 2nd Saturday Nites, continues its Downtown takeover. This month sees the return of Bayou Jamboree, complete with plenty of beer, gumbo, Cajun eats, and live music.

Teams will face off for the best gumbo in H-town with public tastings, with judging and awards immediately following the event.

After the show, grown-ups will also find special entertainment and offers at many of the neighborhood’s eclectic bars and restaurants, including Little Dipper, OKRA Charity Saloon, Niko Niko’s, La Fisheria, Dean’s Downtown, and Treebeards.
