King Cake Festival – Cream cheese-filled, bananas foster-style, or traditional – this festival has all the king cakes you can imagine. On Sunday, Jan. 27, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., head to Champions Square for the King Cake Festival, which benefits Ochsner Hospital for Children. If you can’t decide which to try, let the judges decide for you in the king cake competition featuring categories like ‘best non-traditional’ and ‘most likely to replace a meal.’ Come hungry. Until then, enjoy king cake at one of these spots in NOLA. Admission to King Cake Festival is free, and tasting tickets can be bought here.
