Creole Tomato Festival & Louisiana Seafood Festival 

Creole tomatoes and Gulf seafood are among Louisiana's most delicious natural resources. Celebrate both this weekend at the Creole Tomato Festival and the Louisiana Seafood Festival at the French Market. Now in its 22nd year, the Creole Tomato Festival features performances by local bands, demonstrations by local chefs and other events. Performers include the New Wave Brass Band, the Storyville Stompers Brass Band and the Don Vappie Quintet. Vendors will offer dishes including fried green tomatoes, Creole tomatoes with shrimp salad and Creole tomato gelato. It all takes place in Dutch Alley. Nearby at the Old U.S. Mint, the two-year-old Louisiana Seafood Festival features cooking demonstrations as well as arts and crafts booths and food vendors. Participating chefs include Chris Montero of Bacco, Harold Burkenstock of Arnaud's, Mike Regua of Antoine's, Tenney Flynn of GW Fins, Brian Landry of Galatoire's and Paul Prudhomme of K-Paul's Louisiana Kitchen. Taking place simultaneously at the Old U.S. Mint is the Louisiana Cajun-Zydeco Festival. All events are free. — Shantrell A. Cook
